Book Description

Life seldom unfolds the way you expect. Despite our best efforts, it can wind up in a tangled mess. We lose hope. Faith fades. And then suddenly, in the midst of despair, a door opens, an answer is given, or a new path is cleared because we’re not alone...sometimes angels walk among us.

Arabella’s mother already thinks she’s a little crazy, so when a mysterious Presence fills her with a blinding light, she keeps it to herself. She’s given a heartbreaking mission. She spends her days among her fellow classmates, listening to their secret prayers and waiting for the moment of intervention.

Arabella understands that life is messy, complicated, and beautiful. The way she guides her fellow classmates will ultimately surprise you.

Love emerges from the mess. Hope emerges from the chaos. Faith emerges from the strength to endure.

12 destinies
12 twilights
12 lives that will never be the same

About the Author

I've been writing since I was in grade school. In high school, my 9th grade English teacher suggested I consider a career in writing. After a decade in college and a Master's degree in history, I became a part-time college history instructor and eventually I became a high school history and English teacher. I love my job and teaching teenagers teaches me something every day. For me, writing never stopped. Stories never stopped. READING fiction never stopped. Invisible Wings is my first YA novel, a compilation of short stories centered on teenage life triumphs and tragedies. Visit me at Facebook @Janell Rhiannon and Invisible Wings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious Ways December 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of people like to talk about how much they like a story or characters, so I'll leave it to them. ;) I would like to talk about what I truly loved about this book: its "Blood and Guts and Bones".

The primary thing that strikes me when I think back over the story is how accurate she is at portraying the Divine Plan. Sometimes, what we want to happen, isn't what is mean to happen. Things that seem tragic to us, are beautiful in their own way.
But the thing that truly won me over was that it wasn't bloated with overblown images of christian ideals and excessive God lust. It's not about an angel helping people; it's about true faith. People obsess themselves with the idolatry and symbology prolific in religious writings; and this strips all of that away and leaves us with a writing that perfectly portrays agape love in action.

One of the other things that really endeared me to the story was her use of words. She truly captures the beauty of the English language as the formidable weapon that it is. She carves images so clearly you can almost feel the sand stick between your toes, and her use of metaphors and similes could only be described with another metaphore: she wields them like an artist uses paint. The color blue is only blue, until you add a strip of beige and a swath of orange to realize that the blue paint is an ocean crawling up to a sunset shore.

Finally, and this is an issue very close to me and my own writing, she didn't dumb it down. Her audience is High Schoolers, no doubt; and it is very easily accessible for any age group and reading level. But she doesn't pull her punches when she portrays the lives and the events that HONESTLY HAPPEN TO KIDS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Invisible Wings December 30, 2011
By Tee
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author and I just want to say thank you Janell for writing such a heart felt book and showing people that there is good and love in the world.

First I want to say that this book is heart felt and full of truth. Sometimes people don't want to see or hear the truth. In certain situations truth is a necessity.

An angel is sent down from heaven to grant people there wish but sometimes what you wish for is not always what you want. God gives us what we can bear and in these stories people are going through some hard times and situations and have decisions that need to be made and with a little help from an angel they get their wishes granted.

I cried with some but this book to me is a must read because someone somewhere is hurting and thinking about things and decisions and reading this will open their eyes and help them make a better decision.

Some choices we chose in life we regret but others we don't and these stories about choices and decisions and what happens afterwards. Remember always God is a creator not a destroyer. He heals and mends the broken hearted and he loves us all just the way we are. To God we are like an empty canvas and we draw out our own lives and the finish canvas is a master piece of art!

3.0 out of 5 stars Connected short stories February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book description is somewhat misleading. The girl whose cat talks to her-- the angel-- is the main character, but the short stories revolve around her classmates and how she uses her powers as an angel to make their lives better. I felt that this book had a few coherency issues, but it's good otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Treasure February 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thought this book was going to be one of the fantasy Angel stories I like. Wow! The stories this angel relates "raised the hair on my arms". They are filled meaning and relevance. Be prepared with a box of tissues.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautifully written... June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Arabella always heard what others could not...songs and melodies in everything around her. And on her 15th birthday...she hears what her cat is thinking. Yep, maybe it's time her mom calls the doctor. But instead of realizing she is crazy...she is swept up with the Creator into the Eternity and all is revealed to her. She is an angel meant to live the life of a human as part of her training. And what she does with her new gifts will make all the difference. Cause in a split second she will be able to change the destinies of 12 teens as she grants them each a wish.

This book with each of its stories was so wonderfully and beautifully written. For a moment you can forget your own life and live the life of an angel as she gets to give 12 teens their only wish. I was loving each story as Arabella goes about her journey with each of her classmates. Yes some end sadly but some endings are truly wonderful and great. As we all know are lives do not always go the way we plan. Just because we want something, doesn't mean it will turn out that way.

If you are looking for a book that is so very honest and true...Invisible Wings is just the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing roller coaster of a book! April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Ahhhh, I don't even know where to begin. First off, I will begin by saying this book was a wonderful gift sent to me by a truly caring person, the author, Janell. She didn't send it to me for review, she sent it to me because we have conversed of the hardships of mental health (depression, anxiety, self image). She's been an ear when most don't understand, but she truly does. I think that understanding quality is what makes this book superb.

This book was an emotional roller coaster. 12 Twilights, 12 Destinies, 12 Teenagers who will never be the same. There is one central character, Arabella, who finds out she's an angel on her fifteenth birthday. There is 12 short stories within the main story, and trust me when I say they will change you. One minute you'll be soaring on words so deep and wise you feel them touch your soul. The next you'll be crying and wondering how an angel, and God, could chose for this to happen in life. Unfortunately, we all know that bad things happen, there is no ignoring that. Some people chose not to face the hardships and real deal of life. This book doesn't slap you in the face with it, but gently puts it out there and helps you to understand why it might happen.

There is only 3 books I will re-read. I get bored easily and if I know the ending it doesn't interest me anymore. I've always been that way. This book will be added to the list of books I will re-read. As a matter of fact, I marked the parts that made my soul soar....so the book looks like a coloring book. I've already picked it up a few times a day when things feel dark to help.

This book is a fabulous gift for the teenager in your life who may struggle. Who are we kidding, all teens struggle, it's just do they show it?
