In her fine, ANGELIC BUSINESS: 1. PINK MATTERS, what plot-wise starts out as a trio of adolescent girls, clinging together out of loyalty and shared comfort zones, soon blossoms into something much deeper. The main protagonist, Petra, or “Pink,” is good friends with not only her gal-pals, but also a handsome, popular sports hero at school who seemingly takes her for granted. Suddenly, she is given an up close and personal look at alternate reality. More than that, she is asked Socratic Method style questions about the universe and the very meaning of life, and what part she herself can play in it.
With great adolescent bantering and important themes, such as male protectiveness/rivalry and the belief in one’s self, this work turns what might have been a typical YA book into a unique and intriguing one; a book that kept me thoroughly absorbed throughout. Highly recommended!
Pink likes Seth who only thinks of her as a friend. She and her two best friends, Sylvia and Lorna, decide to try to make Seth jealous so he would notice Pink differently. When a new boy comes to school and seems to be interested in only Pink the girls put a plan into action using the new boy G as bait. G turns out to be more than an ordinary boy who has an agenda of his own.
This is a nice beginning to a different kind of tale about angels and fallen angels. Young adults will enjoy the interchange between Pink and G and the surprises and complications that G brings to Pink's mundane life.
While the purist might say this book needs to have some editing done; I found the author, writing in the first person of the book’s protagonist, Petra aka “Pink”, adds a certain charm to both the narrative and dialogue in each of the book’s three segments.
In Volume 1, we’re introduced to “Pink”, as Petra prefers to be called. Pink, who although is not one of the prettiest girl at school, she’s smart and has plenty of resources available to her.
When Seth’s asks for an insincere date with him, while she adores him, Pink and her friends seek some revenge for it.
But things begin to chance when two new and mysterious boys [one of them is called “G” who Pink come to her school, they say they’re angels on a mission and tell Pink she’s very special and the key to the survival of the universe. Naturally, given she knows her place in the hierarchy at her school, she’s quite dubious and skeptical. However, this changes when both Heaven and Hell arrive at her doorstep.
Once you’re drawn into Pink’s personae, you’re drawn into the story itself and are eager to turn the pages to the last page of this segment, and can’t wait to begin reading Volume 2.
In Volume 2, Greg’s assignment has changed, luckily since Pink gad gotten tired of his interference in her life. The tug-of-war between Heaven and Hell continues to increase with Pink playing the part of the rope. Pink learns the price which had been paid for the resurrection of her mother; she’s in mortal danger since Hell is not known for losing graciously.Read more ›
Set in America, the only thing that are minor distractions are the British phrasings and terminology. But ignoring that you have a story set anywhere.
A recommendation for those with an interest in a strong-minded leading lady and an interesting take on the fallen angels.
The first book, ‘Pink Matters’ did not disappoint, with its interesting, well portrayed characters, all make you need to know what happens next.
Well written, with humour and wit, you find yourself wondering if you have met these characters before. As you get to know them well, you slip right into the story, almost as though you belong there.
This book was faultlessly presented, and sets you up perfectly for the next one, ‘Shapes of Greg’ … when I suspect everything will get a lot more complicated.
Bring them on…
