Meridian is a teenage girl who has seen a lot of death in her almost sixteen years. It has been a constant companion for her and she has no idea why - even small animals seem to die when they are near her. She spends most of her young life being feared by the kids around her, but that all changes as her 16th birthday nears.

On her way home from school, a tragic accident happens and she is forced to flee. She goes one way and her family another. She is sent to live with her namesake, an aunt whom she only knows from the quilts that she sent for all of Meridian's birthdays.

Once there she meets Tens, a mysterious boy who also lives with her aunt. Meridian is told that she is Fenestra, a descendant of Angels who sends souls on their way to the afterlife. She must learn to control her ability, because there are those who would use it against her.

Let me first say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The mythology of this story was entirely new for me as a reader. I felt that it was well thought out, had interesting characters, and kept me enthralled for the entire book. While I did enjoy everything about this book, I wish there had been more back-story on Tens.

I read that there is another book coming out and I hope it turns into a series, because it would be a definite auto-buy for me.

When i first read the synopsis of this book i thought it sounded really interesting and different from anything else i had read. Not to knock the book or anything because everyone likes different things but i didnt find this book very interesting at all. The whole time i was reading it i felt like i kept waiting for something to happen but it just never did...I felt like it had a really cool out there concept but the whole story was kinda half way there...like the author never took it to the level i was expecting. I didnt connect with any of the characters or the world the author was trying to portray. It definately had its moments but i wont be eagerly awaiting the sequel...ill probably just pass altogether
