My Thoughts
★★★  Stars.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
This review is really hard for me to write because I honestly have a lot of anger for this story. I'm not really a big fan of angels/demons/fallen angels... whatever, but, I decided to give it a shot, because you never know, right? Well, to add to that, this chick has cancer and there is no point for chemo or anything because she only has a year.... Sounds like what I literally just went through with my mama (RIP). Why was I mad at this? Because all this time passes and this chick NEVER gets sicker. She is just happy-go-lucky. And it made me so mad to the point of near tears and having to put it down for a while and come back to it because I just remember what my mama went through and I couldn't help thinking "This isn't right. It's not fair" so on and so forth. I didn't give up though, I kept reading and of course it explains why she never got "sicker" which make me bump my rating up from a two to three.
Now, why do I give it three? I really think this book could have been written in just a few chapters as a short story. It just feels like even though the author was rushing, I feel like she was thinking "I have point A & point B but I need something to happen between" and just fit in what she could and when she thought it was enough, she hurried on to point B.
I didn't feel connected with any of the characters to be honest.
I ended up forcing myself through the book and got no pleasure from it. The only time it got really good and I wasn't skimming for pages was at the very end in the last chapter or so.

But, like I always tell people, don't go by what I say, Read it yourself. For all we know, you might end up being overly obsessed with this book your so in love with it. Never let someone else influence your actions. That being said, I give this book 3 stars.
