Angels and demons and girl convinced she's crazy

A Shimmer of Angels (Angel Sight, #1)A Shimmer of Angels by Lisa M. Basso
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just finished reading this book and am happy to see that another book in the series is due out in 2014... especially since this one ended without all the threads of the story tied up neatly.

Rayna is 16 and she's been committed to the nuthouse three times because her visions of angels are seen as schizophrenia. I also must add that there is something deeper going on with her father since he's a little too quick to pull the trigger on his daughter's commitment. Unfortunately, the early Rayna sounds incredibly childish and weak minded, believing she must really be as crazy as they say she is. That went on for so long that it almost made me put the book aside and quit reading it. But then I would have missed all the fun stuff, with angels and demons, hunky Cam and Kade, and a story arc that was unpredictable. Characters were so well created that they felt real.

This was an excellent YA novel, especially when Rayna grew stronger and less childish. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!
