LoveReading View on The Unfinished Angel

Prize-winning author Sharon Creech tells a magical story that's truly original, touching and funny of an unusual friendship between an unusual angel and Zola who find themselves sharing a tower high in the Swiss Alps.

The story is told by Angel who doesn’t usually like people much partly because they talk just when she longs for them to be quiet, and she certainly doesn’t expect to like Zola when she first meets her. But soon the two become excellent companions and both learn a lot from each other. A charming and original story told with delicacy and grace that deserves to be read out loud and more than once to truly enjoy the angel's hilarious malapropisms and outright invented words, and to appreciate the book's tender, comical celebration of the human spirit.

The Unfinished Angel Synopsis

'People are strange! The things they are doing and saying - sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads?' Angel, not fond of people at the best of times and having an identity crisis, is about to meet Zola - a talkative young girl who makes herself at home in Angel's tower in a village high in the Swiss Alps. 'This Zola is a lot bossy,' Angel thinks. But out of their bickering an unexpected friendship forms, which benefits the entire village, reminding us that magic can be found in even the most ordinary acts of kindness.
