Entertaining Angels Blog Tour with Review

Entertaining Angels
By: Emerald Barnes
Genre: Young Adult
Released: June 24th, 2014

Madison Andrews can't face her reflection in the mirror. All she sees is a big, fat nobody. Yet, deep inside she longs for something more, something that's not skin deep.

Along comes Zach, the new guy in school.  He's smoking hot and totally out of her league.  She somehow catches his eye, and he makes her feel beautiful for once. But just as she gets close to Zach, her nerdy best friend, Chase, won't let Madison doubt her true beauty, no matter how many meals she skips.

Even as Madison begins to realize that she is more than she thinks, darker forces are at work, darker than the lies and mocking from her peers, stopping her from amounting to her full potential. Can Madison find true happiness in her own skin?

MY Review: Entertaining angels review: I am not a very religious minded person even though I grew up baptist I seemed to let my beliefs fade or change due to too many questions and not enough answers. I for that reason do not usually review books with religious back round however, I made an exception to Entertaining Angels as it was more that just a book about religious beliefs. I am so glad I did. This story hit me like a bullet straight to the heart. I don't believe I have ever been so moved by any book as I have been by Entertaining Angels. As the character Madison jumped off of the page and put me in her place. I was Madison growing up. I was that girl who was so insecure about her looks and worried that I was to fat or wasn't pretty enough or smart enough. I didn't fit in with the popular kids and I never thought I could attract the attention of any boys. So see I knew Madison's story I lived it. I cried for her every time she got hurt, I wanted to save her from it (that was the mom in me), and I wanted to encourage her to find her voice and to take a stand, but really what I wanted more than anything was for her to see how beautiful she truly is. I was so happy to see that Mads as she was affectionately called by her best friend Chase had someone in her corner. So as I right this review I want you to know that this is a very powerful story about a girl who was so much more than the words on the pages she is very real for me and several young girls today. If I could give this book to every young girl who doubted herself or felt out of place I would. For this book would show them that they are not alone and that they are beautiful no matter there size. Emerald Barnes took these words and showed the world her soul I believe and for that I am truly greatful because she helped me set that young girl inside of me who never felt good enough free. I believe this to be one of the hardest reviews I have ever written just because it truly bared my heart and soul right in front of me and asked me what I was going to do with it. I set it free. Free to feel sad for the girl who missed out, happy to just be me, and forgiving of those who don't understand. I will tell you that this story is an emotional journey that leads to a discovery that Madison didn't see coming! Thank you Emerald Barnes for my journey of discovering me. Your words were beautiful and loving and ones that I won't soon forget!
