Waiting on Wednesday: Halo by Alexandra Adornetto


Publication Date: September 14, 2010 (St. Martin's Press)

Nothing much happens in Tallow Beach. But when three mysterious teens enroll in the local high school, everything changes. Nobody knows the truth: that they are angels on a mission to save a world on the brink of destruction. When Beth, the youngest, falls for her classmate Xavier, she faces a frightening decision: will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize that they are not they only supernatural power in Tallow Beach. The unscrupulous Jack Thorn sees Beth as the easiest target to further his own dark ambitions. The angels and Xavier must use their powers to overcome darkness - but will Beth survive the battle?

Check out Halo on Amazon.com

When I saw this cover, I immediately wanted it. Isn't it beautiful?

Excellent choice ;-) This was my choice today as well. Did you know that the author is no more than 17 and that this is her fourth novel being published? I was so impressed when I read about her.
