Review: Heavenly by Jennifer Laurens
SYNOPSIS: I met someone who changed everything. Matthias. My autistic sister's guardian angel. Honest. Inspiring. Funny. Hot. And immortal. That was the problem. What could I do? I did what any other girl would do-I fell in love with him. Zoë's sister darts in front of cars. Her brother's a pothead. Her parents are so overwhelmed; they don't see Zoë lost in her broken life. Zoë escapes the only way she knows how: partying. Matthias, a guardian sent from Heaven, watches over Zoë's autistic sister. After Zoë is convinced he's legit, angel and lost girl come together in a love that changes destiny. But Heaven on Earth can't last forever.
REVIEW: I loved Heavenly! This book is amazing! I finished it in one sitting! It's so beautifully written! I can read it over and over again! I don't know how Jennifer did it,but it's like the book soothed and calmed me while I was at it...
I loved the way Jennifer has tied so many grave issues like drugs,autism,drinking,belief issues,etc all in a single thread and put it in fiction. This book has characters which will stay with you,make you think about them long after you have read the book! Zoe and Mtthias’s relationship was so beautifully described. Also,Zoe’s fragile family ties makes the book even more interesting to read and love. This book made me think. It’s so simply written…but it conveys so much with such a great deal of sincerity. I have to say I did not see the ending coming.
This is a serious book and if you are looking for a fun beach read,this is just not your book. But if you want a book that will linger with you,a book which will capture you in and with its essence,this is it! It is so different from so many other YAs I have read till date.
