Hunter has never had anyone to look out for him. His mother gave him away when he was young, he's never known his father, and his foster mother leaves a lot to be desired in the mothering department. So when a mysterious, benevolent force suddenly starts coming to his aid, Hunter doesn't know what to believe. Could he really have a guardian angel? Hunter so badly wants someone to care that he's willing to take a leap of faith, and more. But when he finally learns the truth about his angel, he'll have to decide whether it's the best thing that ever happened to him or the worst.

This masterful pairing of suspenseful, fast-paced storytelling with genuine compassion and heart is Joyce Sweeney at her best.
