Green Angel

Green Angel - Alice Hoffman Short but sweet, I loved Green Angel. Green's character is simple but one we can all relate to, in some shape or form. Green Angel is essentially a Fairy Tale. The writing style is quite poetic and really draws you into Green's story.

In a way, self harm is touched upon here. Green (or Ash, as she renames herself) tattoos herself all over, everywhere she can find. She enjoys the pain it brings and doesn't care if anyone thinks badly of her. With the help of Ghost, a lonely dog, Diamond, a boy in search of his mother and Green's neighbour, she starts to heal, which she rebels against at first but slowly becomes who she was.
