Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Clara is an Angel Blood. As such, she has a purpose in life. Her purpose comes slowly through dreams--a forest fire, a boy, a license plate. With the last clue in hand, Clara, her mom, and brother move from California to Wyoming. She meets her purpose--Christian. Her life becomes about realizing her purpose while appearing like a normal teenager. An Angel Blood friend Angela and a mortal friend's (Wendy) pesky twin brother Tucker complicate things for Clara. Suddenly her purpose isn't as clear or as easy as it should be. Who will she save when the time comes?

What I thought: Interesting mythology. Quite an expansion on Fallen and Hush, Hush. The idea of a purpose is interesting and adds momentum to the story. I couldn't put this book down especially as Clara and Tucker's interactions started. A quick search of the Internet has made me very happy. There will be a sequel to Unearthly!
