Overview

Once you've seen, you can't unsee.

Brielle went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She's come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and an incredible, numbing cold she can't seem to shake.

Jake's the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what's going to happen. And a beauty brighter than either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices begin.

A realm that only angels and demons--and Brielle--can perceive.

In Dittemore’s first novel, humans, demons, and angels intermingle, unknown to most humans, in the terrestrial and celestial realms they call home. The story unfolds mainly from the viewpoint of teenage Brielle, who returns to smalltown Stratus, Ore., after the brutal murder of her best friend. Brielle then becomes involved with newcomer Jake, a human with a healing touch. Other chapters take the viewpoints of Jake; Damien, a fallen angel; and Canaan, a “Shield angel” assigned to protect Jake. The humans, however, are pawns in the struggle between the demons, who seek to corrupt their souls, and the Shield angels, there to protect them. A histrionic style overwhelms a few moments of real teen interaction. Some clunkers (“He doesn’t seem enamored by this information”) further hamper the reader’s ability to suspend disbelief. Action obscures the important question Brielle raises when she says that her dad thinks if God exists then he must be cruel, because “He allowed my mother to die.” The plot ultimately serves as a pulpit for a sermon on the importance of accepting that human understanding is limited and therefore trust in God’s greater, unknowable plan is key to being saved. Some readers may prefer a subtler approach. Ages 10–up. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Literary Agency. (June) ■
