The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliant and powerful novel from the highly-acclaimed author of Breathe Cliff McNish. It’s a novel about obsession, a theme that will strike strong chords with tween and teenage readers and also about family, friends, school and bullying. With all the originality and inventiveness of McNish's vividly realised fantasy worlds – angels and angelic powers - it also combines almost seamlessly with a contemporary and realistic setting.

Every time Freya helps one of herwards, she puts her own life at risk. And then there are her fellow angels -understanding what they want from her is perhaps the hardest task of all.
