One of my friends found this ebook and downloaded it because it was free and it had a few 5 star reviews. It took me a while to get to it because I was reading a series. Anyway, she was right. This book is great! I love graphic novels and fantasy and mostly love to read the action adventure kind of fantasy with warrior-type female leads, but every once in a while I like to read something sweet and innocent, which is exactly what this book is. It doesn't try to be epic. It just tells the simple story of a normal high schooler whose world is shaken when she has to move right before her senior year. Instead of acting stupidly and falling hopelessly in love with a guy she just met, Essie is like most of us -- flattered, but wary. She's a hopeful journalist who tracks down the truth, but still wants to give the fallen angel the benefit of the doubt. Seems about right. Everything in Genesis is relatable from the divorced mom and half siblings to the yearning to step out of the ordinary and live a little dangerously. Essie has been chosen for such a time as this... can't wait to see how she aligns herself in the upcoming battle.
