Blog Tour: Book Review – Calling for Angels by Alex Smith

Calling for Angels by Alex Smith
Em never believed in angels. That was until she met Zak and Kai…

Em – shy, sensitive, with her head in the clouds – and Caitlyn – gorgeous, popular and talented – have been best friends forever, in a sleepy, nondescript town called Philiton.

But when new boy Zak moves into town, Philiton suddenly becomes a much more interesting place. With his meltingly hot looks, sense of humour and a smile that has even the hardest-hearted girls falling at his feet, Zak has the female population of Philiton Comprehensive School convinced he’s an angel.

Usually, Caitlyn has the boys worshipping the ground she treads on, so it’s a shock when Zak seems to be more interested in Em. Cracks appear, tensions arise, but surely Em and Caitlyn’s lifelong friendship can survive?

Em feels beset by demons. At home, she’s looking after her grandmother, who is slowly deteriorating, whilst despairing at her normally sensible brother, who is going off the rails just to fit in with the ‘right crowd’. Even Zak’s unexpected attention causes jealous girls to shower Em with spite – not least Caitlyn. If only she had a guardian angel…

Then a second boy steps into Em’s life. Dark and brooding, a captive to the secrets of a past he’d rather forget, Kai, who has appeared as if from nowhere and fallen head over heels in love with Em, is the exact opposite of Zak.

And although he may not seem like it, Kai is the real thing. He really is an angel.

Hard to believe the author was just 14 when she wrote this book!  Alex Smith shows much promise and potential as a writer.  Calling for Angels was a cute book.  I liked it.  It’s a fast read worth taking the time for. There were some unanswered questions that left me a little unsatisfied with the ending but overall it was an enjoyable read.
