Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now, in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can't admit to seeing?
Psychiatry, fantasy and real life come together in A Shimmer of Angels, as a young girl struggles with identity, secrets, and confronting her greatest fears. A Shimmer of Angels is for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or perhaps has felt like giving up entirely. It touches on themes of suicide, ostracism and emotional pain. The author, personally exposed to suicide through the death of a beloved family member, will donate a percentage of sales of this novel to a suicide prevention and outreach program in San Francisco, California.

Why I'm Wishing...
The cover! The cover...
The cover of this book is what drew me. I am a sucker for nice covers. For some reason, the colors and graphic effects really drew me in. I swear I only read the synopsis for this book like 2 weeks ago and I mark this on my tbr months ago :) *sigh* That's just the kind of person I am. And now that I've read the synopsis, I want the book even more. I have a thing for angel books! I don't read too many, but I love them. I can't wait for the release of A Shimmer of Angels. It sounds very interesting.


  1. Hahaha I totally get that. I reacted on the cover immediately. Good luck with waiting, hope they don't change the cover in the meantime.
