50 Word Friday: The Blessed

The Blessed

The Blessed
Tonya Hurley


From the author of the New York Times bestselling ghostgirl series, the start to a captivating and haunting teen trilogy about three girls who become entangled with an enigmatic boy—a boy who believes he is a saint.

What if martyrs and saints lived among us? And what if you were told you were one of them?

Meet Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy. Three lost girls, each searching for something. But what they find is Beyond Belief.


I really wanted to love this book. I didn’t  Sigh. I wanted something new in YA; not vamps, or wolves, or fairies.  And it was saints? Lately, I’ve had a thing for cool saints. Sadly, this was all whacked out saintliness  plus YA and no great bridge to link them.

PS* – And for odd promotional swag read this Goodreads post.

* I love the way I have decided that and PS does not count toward my 50 words. 😉
