A.M. Jenkins was awarded the 2008 Michael L. Printz Honor for this work of fantasy. It is intended for the advanced reader (A). In this novel Kiriel, a fallen angel, inhabits the body of a teenaged boy after he is struck by a vehicle. While in this body, Kiriel explores life on Earth as a teenager.
I gave this book 4 stars. It is evident from the very beginning that Kiriel is not a stereotypical demon. He is kind, thoughtful, vulnerable, and inquisitive. I enjoyed following Kiriel's development as he savoured the emotional and physical aspects of life that many of us take for granted.
This book could serve as a launch pad for many class discussions. Religion and bullying are among the topics referenced in the book.
This is my first experience with an ebook. Ebooks are convenient, but I still love a good hardcover. This book is available in print and ebook formats.
