Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

"In the beginning, there's boy standing in the trees....
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angle blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, 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 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 tires to find her way int a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she's 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?"

Plot: Best. Book. Ever. I probably say that about every book I have reviewed, but I mean it. I wish I could tell you the ending, but I am not that kind of person. Anyway, the ending is really confusing so I don't think I could... In the beginning, Clara has finally found her purpose. She doesn't know much, but there's a boy and a fire. She figures she must have to save him. She moves away from her home, and moves to where she has to go. And may I just say, I think she is top on the list of "Worst First Days of School." She trains and works hard to stay focused on her "mission." But then Tucker comes along. At first he seems like some jerk who she can't stand, but then she gets to know him more. Everything turns into one big question mark as she struggles with everything she must decide. I love it!
Main Characters: Tucker. Is. Amazing. Nothing else to add to that. He is just epic in every way, shape, and form. Of course, so is Clara. She's a perfect balance of responsible and whiny teenager.
Cover: I was interested that it was Natalie Portman (...it is right?). I never see real celebrities on books for some reason and I thought it was awesome. She is one of my favorite actresses and she looks beautiful on this cover.

Overall: I read this one at my aunt's too, and I don't think I looked up once from this book. It is one of my favorites so far and I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves romance stories about angels. I give this a 4/4 but for some reason my computer won't upload the picture, so imagine it's there.
Sweet Daydreams,
Brooke
