"The Day the Angels Fell" by Shawn Smucker is classified as a young adult book, but it is one that adults will enjoy and leave all the readers thinking about it long after they finish reading. Samuel's summer is one that is the worst as a spiral of events have taken place, one being that his mother has died. This sets Samuel on a journey to find the Tree of Life to see if there is a possibility of bringing his mother back to life. However, is death really so devastating or is death a gift?
This is a really well-written book and I loved how the style of it reminded me of books that I read years ago, when I really was a teenager/young adult! The mythical part of the story is interwoven in nicely so that it adds to the storyline and yet there is so much realness there that is a nice balance. "The Day the Angels Fell" will completely draw the reader in and give you a nice story with thought-provoking questions and moments that will leave you smiling.
