Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer ROrn
Ivy Morell is a typical teenager with a dysfunctional
life. Her mother is an alcoholic, her father pretends not
to notice, and the only friend she had who actually knew
anything about her stopped talking to her years ago.
However, when this friend, Virginia, starts calling Ivy
once again, Ivy is thrown into a world of mystery and
intrigue. Her friend thinks she has been chosen. She
believes that the angel Gabriel has come for her and she
is carrying a child of God. Ivy must look past Virginia,
Virginia's strange family, and the herself to find out
what is really going on.
This book was rather
interesting because it was the exact opposite of what I
expected. I wasn't expecting the mystery of the novel to
be about a modern day Virgin Mary. The plot was very well
lined up and I was intrigued the entire way through.
However, there were parts where the book switched back and
forth between different points of view and it took me a
while to figure out who those points of view were.
Overall, a well-written book full of mystery and an
interesting plot from cover to cover.
