    Amazing quantity of imagination

    I thought that this peice of work was amazingly incredable and i read it with in 1 day even less. It inspierd me with its creativity and spunk of descriptions leading in a normal life story. I think that this book would be obtained as a 5 star***** book. I take all the greatest concerns and comments to the author for her story of Shelby and her poor hopeless mother in the 5 star reveiw of "Angels on the roof" When i picked up this book it gave me a feeling that it was going to be really incredable. I give a great job to the illustrator for her remarkably great effort on the front page of the book with all the colours and hard art work that was probelly put into this book. All i can say is i hope there is a continuing of the following book.

    Grabs Your Attention....

    This book was really good. It grabs your attention and makes you want to keep reading until the book is over. This book really shows how you may not see it, but people really in ways can be your 'angels'.

    Angels on the Roof- the first book I read by Martha Moore

    I read the novel by Martha Moore titled Angels on the Roof. I thought that this novel was an excellent one. It was very entertaining and it kept my attention the entire way through. In fact I read the entire book in three days, which doesn¿t happen very often for me. This book was about a fourteen year old girl named Shelby. She lives with her mother, and has never known her father. She has moved many times through out her life time with her mother. Shelby wants her mother to settle down, and just when she thinks she has, her mother talks about moving to New Mexico. Shelby doesn¿t want to move anymore though. She wants to stay where she is and have what she calls a ¿normal teenage¿ life. Now Shelby¿s mom is not the ordinary mother. She arranges flowers for different occasions as her occupation and is always obsessing with something or somebody. Through out the book, her mother talks of a famous artist and even starts to dress like her. Though Shelby has many questions about her father, her mother never answers them. Then one day Shelby is looking for a flashlight in her mother¿s bedroom when she comes to discover a picture that haunts her. It is of her mother and father only her father¿s head is cut out of the photograph. The flashlight Shelby was searching for was to use when she went to the beach over spring break with her best friend Roo. The day she is supposed to leave, her mother announces that they are going to Red Valley instead. Though she doesn¿t want to go to Red Valley, she ends up finding out important information that can lean to answering her life long questions. The detail, imagery, and language used in this book were excellent. These aspects of literature that were used really added to the book. It made it the book much more interesting and it kept my attention. This is one the best books I have read in a long time. It had a great plot and the ending was really well done. I have never read a book by this author, but now that I have, I intend on reading more books by Martha Moore. I hope that the next book I read is as well written as this one.
