Mel is a trainee time-travelling angel. She’s feisty, witty, streetwise and… dead!
Melanie Beeby, just thirteen, has been permanently removed from the late 20th Century by a speeding joy rider. She is elevated to another place, where she attends the Angel Academy. When she is asked to join an elite trouble-shooting group, Angels Unlimited, she is sent on a trial mission to London during the Blitz to help save another young person. Mel breaks the only rule – she materialises to a human – yet still manages to come out top of the class! She is given her angel name – Helix – and comes up with her perfect teen outfit. ‘To me this look says committed, it says now, it says ready for action. I mean, I’m an angel, so I should look divine, right?’
Hilarious, fast-moving, other-worldly adventure!

'Mel is on a mission…'
Mel isn't your average angel. How would 'you' feel if you wound up in a posh Angel Academy, learning about halos and teamwork, when all your really interested in is shopping and boys? Her angel wardrobe is drop-dead gorgeous, admittedly. But hey, if she's an angel, she should look divine, right? It's just all the 'work' that really freaks her out.
But when Mel goes on her first angelic assignment to wartime London, she realises that maybe, for the first time, she's found something she's actually good at…
