In this dystopian, angels have ruined the Earth. That's all I'm going to say about the plot. In the first couple of chapters, Pen saves an angel whose wings were cut off, loses her seven year old disabled sister to a bad angel, and tries not to worry about her crazy mom. And it just gets better from there.
Although Pen has no powers (no spoiler), she is kick-ass. We find out her paranoid mom signed her up for numerous self defense classes for the last several years and in a freaking great paragraph (seriously, highlight it for later use because I didn't and now I can't find it), Ee lets us know Pen never missed a single class. Brilliant!
This is one of those dystopians that reinforces my belief that my family will be the first ones gone in an apocalypse. We have no canned food, no stock of anything, and no defense skills. And no gun. I always have that in the back of my mind when I read a dystopian and in Angelfall, it was front and center. *shudder*
But it's still a darn good book and worth the read.
