What would you do if you saw someone out in the cold? Forget about them and assume they are a bum, or reach out for him in your own little way? Well Katrina chooses the later and has no idea how that decision will change the week to come...

Looking back after a couple of days I hadn't realized that most of the events occur in one week. So much happens in this week that changes Katrina's life. She goes through so much; not only with the business, grandma, and friends but within herself. It's most likely because Katrina was extremely relatable that I got hooked on the story. I still feel like her to tell you the truth. Everyone around you has that "thing" they are good at, while you....well you don't know and think you'll probably aren't talented at anything. You think you might as well accept it, but Katrina learns that you shouldn't just put up that white flag quite yet. So take heart all the "I don't know's"!

The concept of this book is fairly originally and totally has it's moments that makes you twitch a little smile. Malcolm is so authentic and I wish we could have seen more of him. I laughed plenty of times and I thought that it was interesting to see the whole dynamic about how everyone was connected in the whole thread of the story. When it seems things are done and out is when of course things turn around.

The only thing that it felt like it lacked was a strong basis for all the relationships. Katrina's relationship with Vincent was supposed to come through as comfortable and it didn't really come through that way, but it may have to do with what happens in the story. Katrina at first is kind of annoying, which is a major peeve I have with main characters, but I can see where she is coming from. It made me smile though so I can't justifiably put the book down. The title and cover do it an injustice. Favorite thing was the whole idea of what an angel promotion is:)

Reut My friend ordered this. I laughed at her. Should I have?

Cara Yes and no. The title is kind of lame but it does fit the book. It's funny and light but not so much that it feels like it doesn't have depth because it does. The take on angels was unique so I wouldn't say that I absolutely loved but I definitely felt happy after I finished. I usually write reviews for the books I read so I guess you could decide if you want to read it then. Tell your friend she isn't crazy:D

Reut Haha. I'll tell her. This time she'll laugh at me for judging a book by its cover.
