Review: Arms of an Angel

Arms of an AngelArms of an Angel by Linda Boulanger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was different…most of us have probably heard the story of the two boys in high school. One of them comes across the other cleaning out his locker one Friday afternoon and taking everything home and they become friends. Five years later, at their graduation, you find out that the one boy had been planning to commit suicide that weekend, and was cleaning out his locker to save his mom the bother of it. That is how the beginning of this story felt to me – you can tell that there was something going on with Claire but you really didn’t know. It was short (not even 100 pages) and I felt that the characters were a bit shallow and not well-developed at times, the dialogue between the two didn’t seem easy going, but was a bit rough. However, I think it had potential, and might check out future work by the author.
