A Shimmer of Angels (Angel Sight #1)
by Lisa M. Basso
This book was gifted to me from the publisher. Thank You!
16-year-old Rayna sees angels. She has just been released from a mental hospital, which she calls the S.S. Crazy. For three years Rayna was in and out of the mental hospital. Rayna has an episode when she and only she can see that the new kid at her school, Cam, has golden wings. Rayna is extremely fragile. She falls apart completely when she sees that the boy has wings. Cam is surprised that she can see his true form. Kids at Rayna's school start killing themselves and Rayna sees a man with black wings named Kade. I have read a lot of books about angels and demons and this is a well-written young adult one, but I much prefer a stronger protagonist. Rayna is so broken down. I just hated her father and sister for being so cruel to her and I was upset with Rayna for being so weak and just taking it. She got better towards the end and I was starting to like her. This is the beginning of a series, I imagine her strength will grow. 4 stars.
