Description-

  • Meet a guardian angel like no other, from a writer like no other. Bold rising star, Victoria Schwab, makes her whimsical, inspiring, and clever middle-grade debut.

    At a first glance, Aria seems like your average twelve-year-old girl. She has coppery hair, colored shoelaces, and a passion for cupcakes. But there's more to Aria than meets the eye. She can dream things into existence, use her own shadow like a door, and change the world in small, important ways. Aria is a guardian angel. She's been sent here to earn her wings. But to do that, she'll have to help three different girls.

    Aria's first mission is Gabby Torres. Gabby's always been quiet, but ever since her brother got sick, she's barely said a word.When a new school offers her a fresh start, Gabby wants badly to be someone new, but she quickly learns it's hard to make friends while keeping half her life a secret.

    And then Aria shows up. Aria, who knows exactly what to say and do to make Gabby feel better. Will she be able to help Gabby find her voice? And will Gabby still trust Aria when she finds out exactly what she is?

    Think John Green for middle grade, with a touch of magic!

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books mussogirl77 - This book is about a girl named Gaby Torres who is going through some tough times. Her older brother Marco recently got leg cancer so her and her mom and to move with him to a new city where he could get treated. Though they were only supposed to be their for a while the doctors had to hold off the surgery because Marco had a terrible cold that just wouldn't go away and could not risk doing the surgery. On top of that Gabby was having trouble finding her voice in her new school. She also did not want anyone to know that her brother was sick because they would feel obliged to be nice to her. That's when Aria, Gaby's guardian angel, came to help Gabby try to be herself. But will Gabby ever find her voice? Will Marco ever get better? Read the book and I guarantee you will find out.

    Gr 3-7-Aria is young guardian angel on a mission to help three girls; once she does, she'll be able to gain her wings. Her first charge is Gabby Torres, who is relieved and anxious to be starting at a new school and hopes that she can shed her "girl with a sick brother" identity. The first in a series showcasing tweens with "everyday" conflicts, it will engage middle schoolers.

    Grades 4-7 Gabby is nervous about starting her new school, but she is more nervous that people will find out about her brother, who is ill. She loves and worries about him and his condition, but she is tired of being just the girl with the sick brother. Then Aria, a guardian angel in the form of a friend, comes into her life and tries to help Gabby find her own voice. The relationship that develops between the pair gives Gabby confidence. Gabby's voice is authentic, and children who feel defined by a family member's illness will easily relate to her feelings. Aria will be an excellent character to watch in future books in the Everyday Angel series as she continues to help those in need and understand her limitations and abilities. Despite the serious subject matter, there are moments of lightness, especially when Aria is narrating; her readers will welcome her future assignments to earn her wings.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
