Well Said: Half Angel

"So you're saying...you're saying that you're half angel," I said slowly. "Yes."
"Mom, really, come on." I wanted her to laugh and tell me that the angel stuff was some kind of dream she had, like in The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy wakes up and finds out the whole Oz thing was a big, colorful hallucination from getting conked on the head.
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand is SO good so far. I am having the hardest time putting it down. Last night I wanted to forfeit sleep and today I want to forfeit laundry and cooking. Oh and I love that her mom is part-angel too!

  5. Great teaser! I love her tone. Sounds like a character I could totally relate to...well, ya know, except for the half-angel bit, but Mom is rather saintly in her own way... *ponders* ^_^
