My review... "Beverly Stowe McClure’s latest young adult novel, Gabe’s Guardian Angel, brings the reader into the world of Gabe Montana from the onset with incredible imagery and believable teenage angst. Adolescence is difficult in different ways for many people and in Gabe’s case he feels he has many negatives that stand in his way of achieving a “normal” life. Two bullies in school intent in harassing Gabe every day, his dyslexia, his non-existent father and his long passed mother, Gabe sees no way out and wants to die. Until the day Gabe’s guardian angel, Charley, makes his presence known. Shocked, Gabe feels he may be truly going crazy. With the patience of a true guardian angel, Charley, attempts to teach Gabe that everyone has their own battles and all may not be what it seems. Will Gabe heed his new found guardian angel’s help and pull himself out of his spiraling path or will he allow the negative events around him to determine his future? Find out the outcome in Gabe’s Guardian Angel! An important read for young adults and their families. For McClure’s expert writing will surely bring important issues to the surface for discussion."

About the author: Most of the time, you’ll find Beverly Stowe McClure at her computer, typing stories young voices whisper in her ears. When she’s not writing, she’s snapping pictures of wildlife, flowers and clouds. She’s sometimes known as the “Bug Lady.” She’s not telling why.
