Description: When her dad is transferred to a new town, Macy Carver leaves behind her best friend and everything she knows. Suddenly she is the new girl…alone and bullied. An unexpected flash announces guardian angel Jody, who teaches her how to fit in and become a forever friend.
Tiny Angel is about a little girl who has to deal with moving from her town to a new one and leaving all of her friends. She finds her by herself and the others bully her. She meets Jody a guardian angel who helps her deal with all of this.
I think this is a nice book for children to read especially if they find themselves as the new kid. The author does a great job keeping your interest in the story all the way to the last page. I sat down to read this and before I knew it, I was through the book. I found it easily readable for the age group it was designed for. I would not have a problem recommending this chapter book for any child in the age group.
What a good story I really enjoyed reading this one... I can relate to this book because I know exactly how Macy feels being the new kid all alone. My dad was in the military, which made me an Army brat and we were always moving from base to base so I was always the new kid. I hated being the new kid going to a new school every year or every two years depending on where my dad was assigned. I wished I had this book when I was a kid it might of made me feel a little better knowing I wasn't alone.
