Fourteen-year-old Prissie is prepared for a hot, boring summer, since her friend lives far away and her brothers are always rowdy. She is looking forward to going to the mailbox daily, where she can visit with the mailman, her friend, Milo.
One day she sees a young boy watching her as she is on the way to the mailbox. She doesn’t know he is an angel (she’s not supposed to be able to see him).
By being able to see Koki, she soon learns of the other angels in town. There is a spiritual battle beginning and she will have a part in it, only she and the angels don’t know what it is.
About the author- Christa Kinde currently lives in California with her family. She has written fifteen volumes in the Women of Faith study guide series She has also written study guides and workbooks for authors such as Max Lucado. Her website is www.christakinde.wordpress.com.
My thoughts- I don’t know a lot about angels and all the different kinds there are, but this book was tastefully written. I have read several books recently about humans and angels, and they included romance and high infatuation, so this again was tastefully written.
I’m glad I started this book early in the day, because it was hard to put down. And towards the end of the book I wanted to keep reading to learn why Prissie can see the angels and what purpose she will serve.
The only part about this book I didn’t like was the infatuation Prissie had with Milo. I don’t think middle-grade readers need to read about characters who have feelings for older men.
I enjoyed this book and I’m sure young women will as well. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
