Book Description

 August 5, 2012
Michelle Cross is an average, seventeen year old girl growing up in a small town in New Jersey. Up until her senior year, her life has consisted of a rather unglamorous existence. Her closet friend Cami has been by her side since kindergarten, she has a loving if somewhat absente father, and a mother who is unique to say the least. Michelle’s mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was twelve years old, and ever since then she has had delusions of angels and demons battling over her only child. Michelle accepts her mother’s delusions as schizophrenic ramblings, until a handsome new boy finds her at school. Little by little Michelle’s world is turned upside down. The new boy claims to be the Archangel Gabriel cast from heaven, her best friend falls for the Antichrist, and come to find out Michelle’s mother has seen it coming all along. So instead of being consumed with prom and graduation, Michelle finds herself battling the evils of Hell in her small town. The four horsemen of the apocalypses have descended on her high school and with the help of Gabriel, her very own angel; she must stop the events leading to the apocalypse. What surprises Michelle even more than her role in saving humanity is the love that develops between Gabriel and herself. Can their love bridge the world between heaven and earth? Can Michelle stop the powers of Hell in time? Michelle and Gabriel find themselves the pawns in a very dangerous game between an ancient power with a mysterious message and Satan himself.

Wow! I started and finished this book in a day! Even more impressive, it was my son's birthday! I had started reading this while all the kids were in the pool (I of course had to stop reading and continue spoiling my son after the pool)! We had 6 kids with us so it was an extremely long day however this book drew me in so far I HAD to continue reading it that night after the kids all went to bed! I was exhausted from the long day and that did not even stop me from staying up till wee hours of the night (or shall I say following morning) to finish it! 

Poor Michelle, teen years are hard as it is but this girl manages a sick mother, a father whom is barely there , near social isolation and then finding out she's the one to decide what fate shall bring the world?!? Talking about massive peer pressure! And teens in real life think they have it hard! HA! Michelle goes through many more trials in this story including her feelings towards the fallen angel Gabriel (or, is he really fallen), fighting for her best friend and the loss of a loved one brought on by her own actions! Michelle proves to be so much stronger then she could of ever imagined!

I absolutely loved this story. The cover does no justice to the actual story! ( It's a gorgeous cover, however the story leaves you in awe ). I in no way expected to get this amazing of a book when I agreed to do this blog tour! However, don't come yelling at me when you are done with it and want to know more because I myself am sitting on the edge of my seat starring at my Kindle pouting because I have to wait to read more!
