How it Works by Graham Marks
Seb screwed up -- he's been involved in the drug scene, skipping school, lying to his folks... then his girlfriend breaks up with him and everything is falling to pieces. When he gets beat up so bad that he's taken to the hospital, he hears that a "friend" of his saved his life, and suddenly his life has new purpose -- to figure out who that friend was and thank him. Seb begins to pull his life back together while seeking out clues to the identity of his friend -- which clues point to an ... angel ...? Unbelievable, but with everything going on, he begins to wonder.
This Brit import is a little stilted at times, but the plot picks up and takes the reader on Seb's journey. The ending is a bit abrupt, but it's a reasonably good piece.
Happy October! The library will be closed on Monday October 10 for the holiday. Make sure to stock up on good reads before that!
