Title: Blood Angel
Author: Kelly McClymer
Jamie Stone made a mistake. A huge, unforgivable mistake - he snapped and shot the bully who made his life miserable. But the bully wasn't the only one who died. And Amy Davidson, Jamie's former best friend, somehow, is there with him. Haunting him. Taunting him. Her ghost, or spirit, or whatever she is, seems to be stuck visiting him in jail. Trying to decide if she can forgive the unforgivable.
Amy hadn’t been planning to die that day, but she had been to confession the previous Sunday and knew she should by rights be in Heaven. But if she is, life in Heaven is as confusing as life on Earth because her afterlife hasn’t come with an instruction manual. It’s come with a one-on-one connection with her killer, who used to be her best friend and now is the only person who can see her, hear her, and possibly help her figure out how to get wherever it is she needs to go.
I have mixed feelings about this book. It disappointed me a little. It didn't live up to my expectations.The beginning was rather boring and the writing was confusing and it often seemed like something was missing, like words or even sentences had been forgotten. I couldn't get the meaning of some things. And I didn't like either of the characters. Then it get slightly better towards the middle of the book and I was totally hooked by then. I liked how Amy and Jamie's relationship grew and got deeper and they got closer.
It wasn't a great book, but I sure wanted to know what would happen next and how it would end.
And about the ending... it was somehow expected I guess, though I wasn't completely satisfied... It didn't answer a few questions: Did they both go to Heaven? Or did they get to have another chance at a new life? Or did she go to Heaven but he did not? Or maybe they both stayed in Purgatory, waiting to get to Heaven one day?
