This book was entertaining and engaging, but the storyline and voice feel short. The main character, Katrina, finds Malcolm (who she thinks is homeless) sleeping outside her grandmother's coffeeshop and leaves coffee and some pastries for him. What she doesn't know is that Malcolm is not homeless and he also happens to be a messenger angel who now wants to reward her good deed. The book, though it contains many different events and themes, wouldn't be very good for deep discussion or analysis because much of it is presented in an almost too telling sort of way (instead of showing and leaving room for interpretation). In short, I found it to be a good fluff story, but not very deep and without impact.
