The narrator of Sharon Creech's latest book is an angel who feels confused, unfinished, and unsure of what she is supposed to be doing. Her uneventful life is upset by the arrival of Zola, a girl who sees the angel and challenges her to "do something" about a group of neglected homeless children. This is a story that is improved by its transition to audio and the serendipity of a talented narrator. Samantha Quan's delivery is smooth, and she carries off Angel's unique mangling of words without sacrificing meaning. It's obvious Quan enjoys channeling this personable character. Listeners will be equally charmed by this unfinished angel who finds her purpose. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
