Review: Fallen Angel by Molly Snow

FTC FYI: I received an eCopy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Teen angel, Persephone, is the only one in all of Heaven who can’t sing. In fact, her name literally means “Voice of Destruction.” So diving down one of Heaven’s portals, straight into singer Taylor Hamilton’s bedroom, seems like a good idea at the time. Maybe, just maybe, he can help. Plus, he is sooo cute!
While it can be fun swooning over a mortal, it can also be frustrating. Angels aren’t supposed to fall for mortals. Then there’s Taylor’s guardian angel, who is ready to sabotage the budding romance at every turn. Will Persephone learn to sing before Heaven calls her back? And, most importantly, can love prevail for an angel who has fallen head-over-wings for a mortal?
Fallen Angel is a clean, quick YA read with plenty of humor and a few tense situations that move the story along. Most of the issues and feelings in the story aren't things I relate to at this point in my life (so glad to be past that teen stuff), but I think many young teen girls would enjoy Persephone's story, especially if they can relate to crushing on a cute boy and/or wanting to change something about themselves so they can stay with their friends.
Although somewhat clueless in her new surroundings, Persephone has moments of strength that shift her focus from herself to helping others.
I had a hard time letting go of my idea of angels and how they might act if they visited, but aside from that the story was pretty cute.
