Unearthly by Cynthia Hand (Review #9)

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

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

Wow. This book was soooo good! I loved it so much! I'm glad I read it! It sucked me in from the beginning and I could not put it down! I finished it in 2 days.

So it starts out with Clara when she wakes up and smells smoke and so she goes to the kitchen and has a vision of a boy in the woods. The boy in the woods is her purpose in life. If she doesn't complete this purpose then she will die. I can't tell anymore without spoiling the book so go and read the book now! You won't regret it!

"So often we only do what we think is expected of us, when we are capable of so much more.” 

“Have you ever been to a place you're supposed to love, but all you can think about is home?” 

“Tucker: "But she gave me the perfect gift."
Clara: "What?"
Tucker: "You.”

“I feel like Cinderella sitting in the middle of the road with a pumpkin and a couple of mice, while Prince Charming charges off to rescue some other chick.” 

Thanks for reading!
