4.0 out of 5 stars An Atheist Angel, A God-loving Demon, and One Girl's Soul, April 5, 2012
This review is from: The Never Prayer (Paperback)
THE NEVER PRAYER is hands down the best angel book I've read.
First - it's an angel book that doesn't force God down your throat while you're reading it. Angels without God? I know, that's just it - it's fresh.
It's also dark. Dark, and gritty, and real.
Lena is a broken girl, trying to hold it all together - herself, her brother, her town. Along the way she makes some choices that seem inevitable, that seem like the only way she can stay on top. But are they?
There are some great scenes that have really stuck with me. Lena putting on her makeup in the morning - putting on her mask so that no one will be able to see the real her, the truth of her, the pain.
Then two boys arrive, one light and loose - happy and always there, offering her everything she wants, the other dark and angry, standing in her way.
She must choose between them, but first she must come to see beyond her own fears to the angel standing beside her.
THE NEVER PRAYER works so well because Lena's struggles are our struggles. Her choices are not so different from our own. And in the end, I wonder how many of us would have the courage to open our eyes and our hearts to see the truth behind our desires.

The Never Prayer is a bundle of tightly woven, perfectly balanced contradictions and high stakes gambles.
