I am absolutely, 100 percent, head over heels, in love with this book! Jespers has created a true gem, a novel so interesting and captivating that I stayed up all night reading it, foregoing sleep in order to complete this beautiful novel. I was able to get 86 percent of the way through before my Kindle decided to run out of batteries, but thank God for my Droid and the Kindle App! I finished the book in one sitting and really want to go back and read it all over again; it's that good!

Have you ever read a novel in which you can't help but talk aloud to the characters? To yell at them, to offer advice, to laugh with, or cry... that's what happened to me as I read. Selena is an amazing character and Jespers has written her, and all the character for that matter, in such a way that the reader can actually feel their emotions. The tension is so palpable, the characters so defined, that I literally talked to them the entire novel. I love that Jespers has created such venomous characters, such as Fran, and I became tense and loathsome of them to the point that I had some disturbing thoughts about them, such as Fran being hit by a bus... or something... It's very rare for me to connect with a story on such a deep level that I actually hate, or love, a character to a point that I feel so strongly for, or against, them, and I believe this is a testament to Jesper's sheer writing abilities! She is magnificent, and a writer to watch. I will definitely be reading more of her work, especially as Angel Handbook is only the first installment in the series, and it left me hanging in the worst way. And Hermes? *Swoon*

This is a wonderful novel for all ages and I highly recommend it to all. Five stars.

Young adult readers will enjoy this sensitive book about an angel! Though it's fanciful, the book deals with everyday situations that young people face in their schools and homes. Perhaps you've been in a place where people you thought were your friends really weren't, and there were people who wanted to be your friend but you wouldn't let them in to your world. When you see how this angel Selena is sent to earth and assigned the job of helping a troubled cheerleader named Ashley, you'll see how we all might behave like angels to help make the lives of others better. It's an engrossing read, and readers will be wanting to know when Ms. Jespers's next book is coming out!

Gave this to my niece and she liked it. She's a tough critic and would have told me if it was not good.
