I received this book for review consideration from the publisher. This in no way swayed my opinion of the book. Pinky swear!

Ava, a girl born with wings, was also born to a family line who has experienced pain and loss along the way. Ava brings us her story but first tells the stories of her grandmother and mother who paved the path to where she is. Her grandmother is closed off and distant. Her mother is forever heartbroken. And Ava, the girl born with wings, has been isolated in her house away from people until, at 16, she decides she wants to find out where she could fit in with the world as a girl with wings — unprepared how others will regard her and her wings or the motives of an obsessed man who thinks she is an angel.
ALERT: as I type this the book is $1.99 for Kindle!!
*me falling in love with magical realism all over again*
