Book: A Shimmer of Angels by Lisa M. Basso
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC
Expected Publication: November 20th 2012
Information found on: Goodreads
A compelling and spirited debut from Lisa M. Basso in which sixteen-year-old Rayna Evans has spent the last three years locked away in a mental institution for seeing angels. Intent on remaining free, she ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But when her hallucinations begin showing up at school, can Rayna keep her job, her sanity and keep students from dying at the hand of angels she can’t admit to seeing?
Psychiatry, fantasy and real life come together in A Shimmer of Angels, as a young girl struggles with identity, secrets and confronting her greatest fears. A Shimmer of Angels is a wonderful read for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or perhaps has felt like giving up entirely. It touches on themes of suicide, ostracism and emotional pain. The author, personally exposed to suicide through the death of her beloved brother, will donate a percentage of sales of this novel to a local suicide prevention and outreach program in San Francisco, California.
Cover Thoughts:Usually I'm not the kind to gush over covers since I'm rather picky about what I like. This cover though...just gorgeous. The colors are lively and vibrant, the font is simple and clean, I love this cover so much!
Thoughts:A Shimmer of Angels sounds really good as well. I've been looking for the right contemporary to get me back into the genre, and this sounds perfect! There also seems to be some paranormal/fantasy elements in it, but I'm not entirely sure if it'll be one of the main aspects of the book. I usually don't read books if they don't have any kind of romance in them, but I'm willing to make an exception for this one. :) And who knows? Maybe it'll have some romance ;D (A girl can only hope lol.)
