The Sweet Dead Life
The Sweet Dead Life | Joy Preble
1 post
The angel book gets a Texas makeover from the author of the Dreaming Anastasia series. "I found out two things today: One, I think I'm dying. And two, my brother is a perv." So begins the diary of Jenna Samuels, who is having a very bad year. Her mother spends all day in bed. Dad vanished when she was nine. Her older brother, Casey, tries to hold together whats left of the family by working two after-school jobsdifficult, as hes stoned all the time. To make matters worse, Jenna is sick. Really sick. When she collapses one day, Casey tries to race her to the hospital in their beat-up Prius and crashes instead. Jenna wakes up in the ER to find Casey beside her, looking pretty good. Better than ever, in fact. Downright... angelic. The flab and zits? Gone. Before long, Jenna figures out that her brother didnt survive the accident at all, and she isnt just sick; shes being poisoned. Casey has been sent back to help Jenna find out whos got it out for her, a mystery that leads to more questions about their mothers depression and their fathers disappearance. From the Hardcover edition.

Book: The Sweet Dead Life is part of a duology by Joy Preble. I've never read it and I've read plenty of books with angels in them or angels in the title so no idea why this was the first to come to mind!
Movie: City of Angels
Song: Angel by Sarah MacLachlan
