Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Clara and her family move to Wyoming so she can fulfill her Purpose as an angel.

My thoughts:
I will admit I was a little reluctant to pick up this book. The cover made it look a little silly and like just another paranormal romance. However, I was quickly proved wrong by Cynthia Hand's addictive, engrossing story.
I will say a couple things about the story, but I'm going to keep it to a minimum because I don't want to give too much away:
I love Tucker. I don't think I've had a crush on a fictional guy since Holden Caulfield during my freshman year of high school. He is completely perfect and I am super happy that Clara chose to save him, even if it might mean trouble later on.
I also have a prediction for the anxiously-awaited sequel: I think Angela is a Blackwing. It specifically says in the book that Blackwings can make their wings look however they want. Angela can make her wings look all scaley, and although her wings are white like Clara's, I wonder if she can make them change color as well.

This book is an excellent, must-read addition to the emerging angel trend in young adult literature.

    I sensed type of meh about this one on first studying, but then I got the follow up, and made the decision to go returning and re-read it, and liked it much, much better second time! (The follow up was excellent initially through). I'm not sure why it proved helpful like that for me....
