'Peoples are strange!

The things they are doing and saying - sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads?'

Angel, not fond of people at the best of times and having an identity crisis, is about to meet Zola - a talkative young girl who makes herself at home in Angel's tower in a village high in the Swiss Alps. 'This Zola is a lot bossy,' Angel thinks. But out of their bickering an unexpected friendship forms, which benefits the entire village, reminding us that magic can be found in even the most ordinary acts of kindness.

Product Description:

'People are strange! The things they are doing and saying - sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads?' Angel, not fond of people at the best of times and having an identity crisis, is about to meet Zola - a talkative young girl who makes herself at home in Angel's tower in a village high in the Swiss Alps.

Review:

Some books are absolute magic, and this is one of them...it deserves to be read out loud and more than once to truly enjoy the angel's hilarious malapropisms and outright invented words, and to appreciate the book's tender, comical celebration of the human spirit. (School Library Journal)

(An) endearing contemporary fable... Full of mixed appreciation for and apprehension about human beings, it is

filled with phonemic mix-ups, word coinage, inverted grammar and nonsense that soars and fizzes... Brimful of grace and cheer; moving, funny and sweet - and begging to be read aloud.

(Kirkus, Starred Review)

I couldn't help but fall in love with it, for its story, its evocative descriptions and unique characters. It works on so many levels and I think this is one of those truly rare books that stays with you and will become a favourite to reach for during a lull in your reading. (Elizabeth De Jager www.myfavouritebooks.blogspot.com)

Unbelieveably sweet little novel. (The Wall Street Journal)

This is a wonderful novel about social injustice, family, and the healing power of love. The story is vibrant and the setting is glorious. But what makes it truly special is the voice of the unfinished angel, and the relationship it forges with lonely newcomer Zola. Creech is a master at the height of her craft, and the way the airy beginning builds into a rich and satisfying conclusion gives the reader an additional pleasure - the pleasure of reading beautiful prose. The moment I finished The Unfinished Angel, I began to read it again. I suspect you will, as well. (Write Away)
