At almost sixteen, Evie’s life isn’t all she’d hoped it would be. She lives in the dodgy end of town with her mum and her mum’s deadbeat boyfriend, Seb; and adolescent scoliosis means Evie’s forced to wear a back brace until she’s stopped growing.

Then one night, she meets Gabe. Breathtakingly handsome, he crashes, spectacularly, into Evie’s life. He says their meeting was

I loved this!
I thought it was such a lovely and moving story, and surprisingly turned out to be a really interesting mix of coming of age romantic contemporary with a bit of a mystery thrown in.
A great #LoveOzYA read, and a must for any contemporary fans.

Heaven Sent is a YA novel by debut author S.J Morgan. The story follows teenage protagonist Evie, and the novel explores themes of friendship, family and relationship.

The premise of the novel is a weird one — Gabe crashes his car into Evie’s bedroom one night, and then feels unexplainably drawn to her. It’s almost as if he’s a guardian angel for her, even though he’s noticeably absent for a lot of the novel and his disappearances are rarely explained.

My View:
For some reason I do not read a lot of YA novels - and yet each time I do I ask myself why I do not seek out more of this genre?

This book is a fabulously satisfying read; the characters are well developed, the situations/issues raised are illuminating, thought provoking and the narrative was engaging and SATISFYING, yes I know that word again.

You really will enjoy reading this novel. :)

This book was really interesting and it was definitely a bit different to what I was expecting.

Evie lives with her mother in a house that’s nothing to write home about. Her mother is in her forties, working a dead end job to make ends meet and provide for not only Evie but also her own boyfriend, a no hoper named Seb who is significantly younger than Evie’s mother and seems to use that as leverage to do as little as possible. Evie really only has one friend at school, Paige, who comes from a mor

If you’re looking for a book that starts with a bang and hooks you from the very first page: this is it. I felt I wanted to befriend the main character, Evie, straight away. With S.J. Morgan’s warm and witty writing style you can’t help but sympathise with Evie’s catalogue of troubles and along with her, grow increasingly mystified at just who gorgeous Gabe (the young man who bursts into her life) actually is. I found myself torn time and again between whether Gabe, with all his devotion to Evie ...more

Heaven sent
Evie, a teenage girl with more than her fair share of problems meets Gabe, in extraordinary circumstances, literally crashing into her world. Has he indeed been heaven sent? He says he is here to save her. It certainly seems like it and Evie really wants it to be true.
Although the book is aimed at young adults, the themes are not confined to an age group. We all have that longing to fit in, feel a sense of belonging and a need to find a way out of our problems. A guardian angel seems

An unexpected story that had me guessing almost the whole way through.

I really enjoyed this read, the short chapters that made it easy to keep flicking through, and the natural, almost real-like characters, especially the flawed ones - Seb and Paige. I only wished we could have had more of a certain character earlier in the story.

The first half was intriguing as I tried to figure out the answers to all my questions about Gabe. Evie was kept in the dark and so was I. And just when I thought I f
