Coffehouse Angel (Student Review)

Coffehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors

Katrina, a young, 16 year old, is your average girl. She’s not popular, she’s not a genius, she’s no a star athlete,. She’s not good at anything. She has two best friends, Elizabeth and Vincent. Katrina’s parents died in a mysterious and horrible car wreck when she was just three years old. She was then left into the care of her grandmother, Anne, and her grandfather, who is now dead. Katrina and her grandmother own and run a coffee house, with another friend named Irmgaard, called Anne’s Old World Coffee. The Business is failing and bills are going unpaid thanks to the coffee house right next door, The Java Heaven, owned by the heartless Mr. Darling and his perfect all too perky daughter, Heidi..

        When Katrina steps out to take the garbage one morning, she sees something that will unexpectedly change her life forever. A seemingly homeless boy is sleeping in the alley. Though told by her friend, Vincent, to stay inside till he got there, she quickly stepped out and gave the boy some coffee and a bag of chocolate covered coffee beans. Just for that “selfless act”, her whole life gets turned in side out and upside down, because the boy she helped just so happened to be an angel, named Malcolm. He refuses to leave until he rewards her good deed, and maybe That’s not so bad considering he’s pretty good looking!

        This book is a truly amazing and sweet love story about a girl who’s life is in ruins and a good deed that changes it all. Friendships are questioned, honesty forgotten, and love found. This book has some minor swearing and is a great read for anyone over 12. I give this book a rating of 10/10! I’m really glad I read this book!  It was funny and interesting, and sweet. The characters were very well thought out and definitely a good time! I believe this book is mostly for girls, and I would recommend this to everyone who loves a good, funny love story!
