Have you discovered ANGELHOOD yet? We want to tell you all about it.



It is a joy to share fellow authors with you here at my blog: A Pen for Your Thoughts. This week I'm privileged to introduce you to Y.A. author A.J. Cattapan so we can tell you about her exciting new release, Angelhood. 


Read on and learn a little about Amy's new book 
and a little about Amy herself. 




A. J. Cattapan (Amy) is an author, speaker, and middle school English teacher living in the Chicago area. Amy's published works include the young adult novel  Angelhood, a story in Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade


Amy has also written short stories and articles in numerous magazines for teens and children, including Highlights and Hopscotch for Girls. She will also be featured in a recipe and corresponding story anthology due out this summer.



Seventeen-year-old, theater geek Nanette believes her life her life is headed toward stardom on Broadway. But when her dream theater college rejects her and her best friend dies in a terrible accident, Nanette decides the world would be better off without her. Unfortunately, the afterlife offers something less than a heavenly situation. Trapped between alternating periods of utter darkness and light, Nanette is stuck following a high school freshman around. Soon, she learns she’s a guardian angel, and the only way she can earn her wings is to keep her young charge, Vera, from committing the same sin she did—taking her own life.




Unfortunately, Nanette is missing more than just her wings. She has no tangible body or voice, either. Frustrated by her inability to reach out to Vera and haunted by memories of her old life, Nanette wants to give up, but then she sees what happens when another Guardian at the high school turns his back on his charge. The shock is enough to supercharge Nanette’s determination. If she’s going to find peace in the afterlife, she’s going to have to discover what living is really all about.
