Reviewed by Mina Rivera for Readers' Favorite

The reason why I chose "Children of Angels" to read was that it is about angels and it is directed toward young adults. I felt that it was a promising book given that today's youth are so focused on violence. "Children of Angels" is about a young boy named Jeremy, constantly bullied and never really fitting in anywhere he goes. He suddenly discovers that he is half angel with hidden powers like the ability to fly. His life changes when he discovers that he is not alone and that there is a school for children who could fly like him. Convinced that this is the school for him, Jeremy urges his mom to accept the invitation for him to study at that school. His real troubles start at the school, when demons begin to taunt him, demons he alone can see.

I loved "Children of Angels" by Kathryn Dahlstrom in this first installment of the 'Children of Angels series'. This is because it clearly teaches the reader that each of us is special in our own way and that we have a place in this world. It also teaches us that there is a God who loves us and who has a plan for us. It proves that even though we are not getting our wishes and prayers answered now, we should rest assured that He has heard it and that we should trust that He will be giving us what we prayed for in His proper time. All we need to do is believe. This is a great Christian book for young adults as it teaches us to be ourselves.
