This is I believe Ching's first novel and it shows The concept isn't bad and the writing isn't dreadful but overall it just clunked The biblical scholar in me winced at the sloppy interpretations of certain texts; the small town girl rolled her eyes at the stereotyped version of the bigoted narrow minded townspeople; the writer tried to overlook the cliched plot development; the reader completely lost patience at the literal deus ex machina at the endIt's not a dreadful book I'm probably judging it harsher than I ought because of my dislike for fallen angel stories I did not realize before reading this that it was that sort of book or I wouldn't have even started it The characters are well developed The story was interesting There were very few instances of people doing stupid things because otherwise everything falls apart that is so prevalent in paranormal YA There was even character development and growth But overall well like I said before it just clunkedOne final note for those who are leery of it because it is a Christian book it isn't It borrows from certain Judeo Christian ideas and texts but where the main theme of Christianity is redemption the main theme of this book is forgiving oneself That's a subtle difference but a crucially important oneI will keep reading Ching's Grounded trilogy but I'm done with this series Not my cup of tea

I got this as a free download ebook From the little synopsis that was presented it sounded like a decent book Nothing special but something to read while on the go and not have to worry about stopping and picking back up later Ok well maybe it is just me but the synopsisdescription of the book and the actual book were totally different Maybe its all the religion thrown in and seemingly forced down my throat each chapter I don't mind a book that touches on religion or has it as a key component but at least mention that when talking about the book I didn't need to be reminded every few pages about how one character felt about religion or another Also found the small town racistbigot idea annoying and offensive Especially with dealing with the main character's family Found the characters themselves to be shallow in depth and annoyed by how they acted when confronted with problems I only finished the book in order to know how it ended and because I wanted to see how this one would wrap up in order to continue into a series

Ack read another free book that ended up having way too strong religious overtones for my taste I really don't know why booksellers can't make it obvious and I'm surprised this one slipped past me with all the checking I did about the genres and such but by the time I realized it was kind of a trainwreck in progress and I couldn't stop I think I'm going to stop reading free books most of them are terrible at bestAnyway Book about a teenage boy trying to deal with the possible death of his last remaining parent He starts with a sort of frustrated and cavalier attitude when it comes to believing in a God that didn't do anything for him in the very first chapters of the book and this is where I start guessing as to what this book might actually be I'm sure you can guess what happens at the end I give this a star because up until the very end all the arguments and the storyline was ok for the YA audience this was written for I am seriously sick of picking up books that sound interesting and then end up focusing on religion As if it wasn't frustrating enough to read books featuring weak and dependent women this book and many others like it goes one step further and turns women into idiots usually by punishing them for being strong in some way or not even giving them this opportunity at all This book does it with the two main female characters Makes me want to rip my hair outOh the reason for the second star thanks for touching on racism but no thanks for the token minority female But I really don't know why I'm expecting so much from a YA book
