This is a dystopian story about a young girl who is selected to be an angel . While this is seen as a blessing in her community she dreads what it actually means which is leaving her family for good and going into the unknown  . Away from her family and thrown amidst the terror and chaos of this new life she finds it hard to adjust to the constant hardship and daily terror . Daily struggles increase when a misunderstanding leads to brutal treatment from those she felt close to. This is an often brutal story with violence and cruelty , I had  moments of shock reading it and at other times my eyes were stinging from the tenderness in the story . I recommend this to all dystopian or fans of Greek legends . 

I received this book for review from the lovely people over at Lovereading4kids.
