The Guardian Angel Diary

When you look at Nicole Bealert, she looks like your average 16 year-old teenage girl. She attends school, hates homework, and loves to write. It's what you don't see that makes her truly unique!

Nicole has been diagnosed with brain cancer. It was lucky that they found it when they did. Her mother died of cancer which has left her father a workaholic who barely finds time for her. Perhaps after dealing with the loss of his wife and now finding out about Nicole's tumor, this is his escape.

Nicole has found a unique way to cope. She has begun to write in a journal as a means of therapy. Believing that she has her own guardian angel, she begins a written conversation with him. She believes that any thought that comes to her head while she is waiting for a reply, is the answer from her guardian angel.

It's in her written conversations between her angel and Nicole, that we learn how she is coping with not only the physical loss of her mom, but also with the emotional connection with her father and her brother Luke, who has immersed himself in the virtual world of computer games. She struggles with keeping her friends because she feels her life is doomed so why let anyone close to her, only to get hurt when she dies.

She looks for answers from her angel to let her know if she is going to die, to which he replies everyone will eventually, and encourages her to live her life today, one day at a time. He offers ways to look on the bright side and provides insight into why her father and brother are coping with her cancer the way they are. He comforts her at night when she has difficulty sleeping and they share a close connection quite out of this world.

I received The Guardian Angel Diary by Grant Schnarr compliments of Kelly and Hall Book Publicity for my honest review and LOVED this unique way of seeing how someone deals with so many issues as a young teenage girl with cancer. This is a book, you won't want to miss and it comes highly recommended with a perfect 5 out of 5 star rating. You feel as though you have stumbled upon a beautiful conversation between Nicole and her guardian angel as they begin this unknown walk through Nicole's diagnosis. What it will end will truly leave you wanting more!
