Overall, this is a good story that shows teens struggling with faith in God due to events and circumstances in their lives but also enduring those trials and coming out with a better understanding of themselves and their fellow human beings.
Gabriel is still my favorite character, but I could relate to Faith's situation and her emotions. The dialogue between the various teens seemed natural and believable.
My only complaint is the way the paragraphs were structured in the dialogue. When one person was speaking, the reaction by another person was often included in the same paragraph, which sometimes confused and caused me to stop and read a paragraph again.
This is a good, clean teen read that has a lot to offer readers regarding managing anger, first infatuation, and understanding what God has in store for you.
I purchased the Kindle edition of this book.
The characters were a continuation from book 1 in the series and it was nice to go back into their lives and see their maturation process. Sometimes you're screaming "NO" in your head, sometimes you want to applaud, and all the time you just keep going one more chapter further to see what happens next.
Gaouette is becoming one of my favorite authors and I can't wait for the next book or for my children to get older to read them. These books will become a part of their personal libraries and ones I hope they re-read throughout their Jr high and high school years.

Like book 1 in this series this is an intense read but for very different reasons. Instead of being about someone who has not ever really interacted with people of faith, and helping them turn their life around. This book is about a girl named Faith, who has always been a Christian, a good Catholic girl. He brother is a Catholic and her parents raised her well. But all of a sudden she is making some bad choices, some very bad decisions. She has started blowing off her closest friend. She is making jokes and disparaging remarks about things she believed and was committed to previously. She is interested in a guy with a wicked temper and who has hurt her and left bruises. The boy she is interested in named Christian, is on a Kung Fu Scholarship at their Catholic school. He does not have any faith, and a lot of anger. When he is suspended from school for fighting, Faith has the idea that he can continue to train with Gabriel at the local dojo. And like his namesake the angel, maybe Gabriel can save Faith, even from herself, and maybe, just maybe even be able to influence Christian to help his change course.
There are a number of strengths to this book and the series. First are the characters. Gaouette does an excellent job fleshing out her characters. They are real, and very well written. Also the plot, there are likely very few of us who have not known someone who drifted away from the faith, or someone who struggles or struggled with anger issues. Or have friend impacted by divorce and its effect on the whole family. Gaouette captures so many deep issues and yet deals with them with sensitivity and from her faith based perspective.
But to find that out you will need to read the book. This is another great book by T.M. Gaouette, and I hope very much that it is not the last in this series. And that we have many more excellent Catholic young adult reads from her in the years to come.
Will Christian finally get the guidance he needs and is Faith's friend Gabriel able to guide her back to the path where she belongs?
