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 eight. Her older brother, Casey, tries to hold together what's left of the family by working two after-school jobs--difficult, as he's 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 didn't survive the accident at all, and she isn't just sick; she's being poisoned. Casey has been sent back to help Jenna find out who's got it out for her, a mystery that leads to more questions about their mother's depression and their father's disappearance.
