On a night of frost and ice, she falls from the sky, the beautiful ice-girl Cari, cast out of her world and into ours.

It’s an unusually cold Winter, but 15 year old Jake is more concerned with the ice forming in his dad’s new relationship and the fact that the girl he likes is dating his best friend.

Gazing out of his window one night, fifteen year old Jake thought he saw something falling to the ground – the icy weather was unusual but what he thought he saw that dark night was even more unusual. Grabbing his torch and jacket, he snuck outside to head for the park – what he found had him wondering at his sanity…

Pale and translucent, the angel girl had an ethereal beauty that Jake couldn’t believe; as she regained consciousness, her terror was obvious. And when she fled, Jake didn’t foll

I was sent this novel by Hague Publishing in return for an honest review.

The City of Silver Light is a beautiful written novella about Luke, a teenager, who is dealing with all of the usual teenager angst including a best friend who is now dating the girl he has been in love with his whole life, a dad who is absent all of the time, an almost step-mother, an annoying little brother, and school on top of all of that. One night he sees what seems to be a star falling from the sky, and then a strang

This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-

Rarely do you find a book written from the teenage perspective that resonates so well. Dealing with parents arguing, being in the "friend box", coping with a little brother and school, these are all issues many deal with every day. Often the story becomes bogged down in them and the reader is left annoyed.

Fox introduces the characters and the world so smoothly you don't realise you've become friends until you are half way through. Blended seamlessly with the mundane every day, Jake Miles discov

We often hear the saying "not everything is as it seems."
What if you looked up one night and saw something fall from the sky in your back yard? And what if that then changed how you looked at EVERYTHING? It might even mean the destruction of planet Earth!
That kind of tension and sense of adventure makes this an intriguing first book!

This is a lovely mix of genres, with a tone similar to Margaret Mahy's YA books and Maggie Pearson's Owl Light duo. There's a fairytale quality about it with a strange girl discovered in the park. Is she really from the shining city Jake can see in the sky? Meanwhile,Jake has his own, more ordinary-world, problems.
