Dirty Little Angels by Chris Tusa
Set in the slums of New Orleans, among crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of 16-year-old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers financial hardship and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses’ lopsided view of religion, Hailey and her brother Cyrus begin spending time at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, Moses’ twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Thank God that this book was free to me via a giveaway on Library Thing. I would be pissed if I had just dropped $10 on a kindle book that was this boring. Seriously there's so much description into things that normally would make for fantastic writing, but the way it's done in this book, makes it weak. There's no relatability to anyone in this book, and they just seem to be the type of people you want to avoid in life, not read about. I can understand try to make this "coming of age" and "overcoming your upbringing" story really mean something, but it was boring, dragging and a waste of my time. I wouldn't waste my money.
