Coffeehouse Angel - Suzanne Selfors I'm not going to go into the details of this book, Namz has already done a wonderful job of that.

This was a fun, refreshing read. For a change, romance was not the main element of a teen YA novel, it took the back seat and remained there throughout. Indeed, even though the male lead(s) had a pivotal role(s), the focus remained entirely on Katrina.

Also, this book stood out because, again, for a change, the heroine was NOT in love with her male best friend -
“Do you think it's weird that we're not in love with each other?"
"No. I think it's perfect.”

I LOVED that Katrina was not one of those heroines who needed to be rescued by a hot hunk (coughTwilightcough), she rescued herself. Sure she made some mistakes along the way, but who's perfect? I'm kind of in the same place in life as Katrina so I could relate a lot to her and her story. Maybe because of that I found myself in tears in more places than one and the part where Imgaard finally reads her message, I bawled for a solid two minutes. I needed to read that.

All in all, a good read, one that'll make you think, that, hey, maybe life doesn't have to be so bad after all, and puts a smile on your face that'll stay long after you turn the last page.
