This book will leave you so breathless, so filled with hope when you end the novel that you will truly feel changed for the rest of your life.
The plot is all well and good, but what really caught my attention was the style of prose in the writing. The text was short, yet so enchanting, pulling you into the tale without any release. The tale of the healing is so poignant, it left me completely breathless wishing for more.
This book was a truly wonderful experience, and it is one I will never ever forget.
Green Angel, a book about a young girl who loses her entire family in a fire. After losing her family, Green suddenly finds herself alone and seemingly futureless. In her grief she cuts her hair, tattoos her skin, and changes her name to Ash. Facing starvation, hordes of looters (other children whose familes were lost to the fire), and her ever mounting grief, she meets friends in unlikely places who help to discover the Green she was meant to be.
Green Angel was shorter then most fiction novels today, but was one of the most inspiring stories I've read in a while. The characters represented different emotions and feelings perfectly and the story line was sweet and resolved itself towards the end...giving you that *happy* feeling you get after reading a tragic story that ends well. All in all, Green Angel is a great read for anyone who wants to fill a short time with a wonderful story.
