What we say - review by Nikki Mason:
Three extraordinary kids. Three astounding stories. What will you believe?
Angela is just an ordinary teenager until the day she falls through a fence at school into the alternative reality of the Guardian Angels, a group of twelve teens who are tasked with protecting people in the build up of the final war between good and evil. But no one will answer Angela's question: why?
Charlie knows he is special. Of course he's a Guardian Angel. But he is also a Yellow - the GA's rivals who try to prevent all their good work. But why is everyone suddenly ignoring him?
Ashe is diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and yet he can open doors between worlds and time. He understands what it really means to be a Guardian Angel but can he cope with the knowledge alone?
Marie Marshall tackles big subjects in The Everywhen Angels from religion and science to war and politics. All this rages on in the foreground of the lives of three teenagers who are trying to find their place in their world and be comfortable in their own skin. Action packed, full of crazy tangents, incredible ideas and stunning description, the novel is completely different to anything I have read before. It can at times be confusing, but bear with the story - the mind-boggling themes and plot diversions will be explained and will feed the curious minds of young adults.
