What happens when falling in love and falling from grace collide?


High school junior Lily Tyler dies along with her two best friends in a car accident, but miraculously she comes back to life several minutes later. Unable to deal with her loss and her survivor’s guilt, she moves to her dad’s. While there trying to heal from this tragedy and come to terms with the event, she meets some people at her new school who are all too eager to help her. Struggling to fight her feelings for two of these strange new acquaintances, Luc and Mo, she finds out their true identities.


Lily must move on from the past, reconcile her feelings for Luc, and find a way to stop a divine war with the fallen angels, all while trying to pass the eleventh grade.


Exclusive Excerpt #2:
I saw everything with new eyes and wanted to go back and view the accident site with a new understanding. I started the car but before I put it in reverse, Luc climbed in the passenger seat. He didn’t say anything, just buckled his seat belt and looked at me. “Luc, what…?” I started to ask. He flashed me a sad version of the smirk that had given me butterflies so many times before. “I know where you’re going, and I’m going with you.” “You do?” How could he? I’d only figured it out a minute ago. Oh right, divine being. “Yup, let’s find out what happened to your friends’ angels — and yours.” He faced forward, waiting for me to drive. I nodded and put it in gear. The old me had flashes of panic… I was skipping school again, my parents didn’t know, I should tell someone, but the new me with the perspective of everything going on and how it all really worked had taken over. There was gas in the tank, a cell phone charger in the car, an angel sitting next to me, what did I have to lose? Other than notes in LA3 and the respect of Mr. Potter.

  • What a great premise, and I love that title, especially the fonts used. Creepy! There’s nothing better than a kick-ass heroine, and I wish Shawna great success. 🙂
