Can you believe that it is that time of year already? This years batch of Christmas novels are starting to roll out with increasing speed.  The first up for me is Paper Angels, by Jimmy Wayne.

Paper Angels is about two families.  The first is Thomas and his sister, Sarah, and their Mom.  They left his abusive, alcoholic Father a year ago and have been struggling ever since.  This year his Mom has lost her job and signed them up to receive gifts from the Salvation Army Angel Tree.  The second family is Kevin and his wife, Jenny.  Kevin's company is on the verge of going belly up and Jenny is pregnant with twin boys. Even though they face great uncertainty, Kevin feels called to take a Paper Angel.  It just so happen to have Thomas's name on it and his list is great.  A new pair of Nike basketball shoes, a digital camera, an iPod, and an autographed Michael Jordan Bulls Jersey.   Will he be able to afford all of the gifts that Thomas wants let alone find them before the deadline?

I knew that Paper Angels was written by a Country Music star, but I had no idea that the book was based on his song, Paper Angels.

The book is a quick little read, but packs quite a punch when it comes to the message.  While I think it is written for adults, it most certainly could be read by teens, too.  In fact, I think it should be read as a family, the message is so very important.  


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
