Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

On the library stacks: YA Fiction
AR Reading Level: 4.2
Series: Unearthly #1 of 3
Recommended for: Ages 12+

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Clara Gardner has recently learned she is part-angel. Her mother has explained that all angels are given a purpose which they catch glimpses of in visions. Clara's visions of a boy standing in trees needing to be rescued from a fire has brought her family to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Now not only is Clara the new kid at a new high school, she's also trying to figure out what her vision means. She realizes that the stunning boy in her vision is a popular kid named Christian. But a cute cowboy named Tucker has her struggling to choose where to focus her attention.

This was my book club read for August. We all decided the summer is a great time to read something a little more frivolous, and most of us are pretty new to the angel scene. It turns out it was a great read. More people actually read the book this month than usual, and quite a few of us (including me!) had to check out the second book in the series right away.
