"If you want a brilliantly written, encouraging, positive, optimistic, non-violent, everything-but-shallow, realistic, sweetly innocent, yet exciting and intense novel, a novel to which they will easily relate, treat your teen bookworm to Calling for Angels."
(Ivana Maric,
Willing to See Less)


Em - 14 years old, shy, sensitive, with her head in the clouds - and Caitlyn - gorgeous, popular and talented - have been best friends forever, in a sleepy, nondescript town called Philiton.

But when new boy Zak moves into town, Philiton suddenly becomes a much more interesting place.  With his meltingly hot looks, sense of humour and a smile that has even the hardest-hearted girls falling at his feet, Zak has the females of Philiton Comprehensive School's Year 9 convinced he's an angel.

Caitlyn usually has the boys worshipping at her feet, so it’s a shock when Zak seems to be more interested in Em. Cracks appear, tensions arise, but surely Em and Caitlyn’s lifelong friendship can survive?

Then a second boy steps into Em’s life. Dark and brooding, a captive to the secrets of a past he’d rather forget, Kai appears as if from nowhere - and falls head over heels in love with Em. 

And although he may not seem like it, Kai is the real thing. He really is an angel.
