Dawn Huntington wants what every girl wants, a sweet sixteen birthday party with her friends, family, and some hot boys, but fate has other plans. On the night of Dawn’s sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a crime she can’t turn her back on, and the decisions she makes that night will change her life forever.
Never having been confronted with such violence, Dawn turns to a mysterious and beautiful boy named Angelo, only she can’t remember what happens that night. To make things more complicated, Dawn is in a relationship with Angelo’s complete opposite, Nate. Dawn doesn’t want to hurt Nate, yet she can’t shake her feelings for Angelo, even when she can’t help but feel he’s hiding something from her, and it could be something dark. Why is Angelo acting so weird around Bonita? Are they together? Are they really only friends?
Angelo may be trouble, but Dawn can’t ignore her feelings for him. Dawn is at a crossroads. Should she choose love? Or friendship? Once Dawn finally finds the courage to choose, she thinks the drama is over. But Dawn wasn’t expecting her choices to have such dire consequences.
I tend to be on the fence when it comes to angel books but I actually really enjoyed Angels Dawn.
My favorite thing about this book is how surprisingly well written it is. I didn’t really notice but when I was really taken aback by how well the story flowed.
I read this book really quickly because of how well everything flowed together.
There was some insta-love, and I’m not a fan of insta-love, but I could see how it worked for Angels Dawn.
Overall, I thought this book was a really cool YA book and I’m so curious to see what happens in the next book. I feel like Angels Dawn is one of those books that grows on you with time and you’ll always kinda remember it.
