Angel Creek is a book for anyone who has ever felt scared or brave or selfish or tough. If you like Skellig or Journey to the River Sea, you’ll fall in love with this.
There are only two things Jelly likes about her new falling-down house: the old apricot tree and the creek over the back fence. One night, Jelly and her cousins spot something in the creek’s dark waters. At first they think it’s a bird, but it isn’t … It’s a baby angel with a broken wing. And they decide to keep it. But soon things start to go wrong, and Jelly discovers that you can’t just take something from where it belongs and expect that it won’t be missed.
A truly moving angel story.
