The Romance Diva: New Review: Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand

In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

What I thought:
I've wanted to read this book for a while.  I find myself rushing out to buy books hot off the presses and it usually turns out to be wishful thinking on my part.  My hectic schedule always seems to get in the way of my guilty pleasures.  Anyway, I finally set down to read this and I have to say it almost killed me.  Because of my schedule, I read when I should be sleeping, and when a book is good I get caught up in it and it's hard for me to put it down.

Yep.  That's what happened with this book.  Not being one to give up, I propped my eyelids open with some toothpicks and kept on reading!! ;)
