Who is going to believe a five-year-old who insists an angel told him that America will soon be at war. Connor's father is the Chief Economic Advisor to the President. There are natural disasters, economic crises, political opposition and uneasy alliances tearing the nation apart. America is ripe for picking.

I won this book in a FirstReads giveaway, and when I read the summary, I thought it looked fairly interesting but wasn't necessarily something I'd normally read. I'm so glad I had the chance to expand my horizons. L.P. Hoffman did an amazing job with this story. It was fascinating, perfectly paced, and the characters seemed achingly real after only a few chapters. I haven't read a book that's absorbed me this much in a very long time. It was beautifully written. It was also surprisingly poignant. The book's summary speaks of a little boy who sees angels, but the story wasn't really about that. It was more about people, regular people with regular problems, the kind that go about their daily lives showing the sort of quiet compassion and faith that turn ordinary men and women into angels on earth. It's about the choices of individuals, the way we're all connected and the differences just one of us can make. This book had bar fights and explosions and murders, but I'd still categorize it as a feel-good book, and one I'm glad I had the chance to read
