In Gabe's Guardian Angel, Beverly Stowe McClure taps into some of our early growing pains when we don't fit into the "in" group. Gabe is definitely a kid who is the odd one out.

The story of Gabe and his guardian angel is engaging read highlighting some series topics that many teens and families deal with. It is a heartwarming journey with likable characters that grow and change with a happy ending.

I volunteered to read an ARC copy of this book. This is my honest opinion.
