Heavenly

Heavenly - Jennifer Laurens I was hesitant on reading Heavenly. I'm not going to go into my religious beliefs, other than to say--I don't have any. There are books involving God and religion that I can't stomach, like listening to a preacher. Then there are those books that I absolutely love, because they're written in a way that I accept as fiction, and not someone's actual beliefs.I loved Heavenly.It explores living with an autistic child, and shines a light on autism. Too often society looks at it as a horrible thing, people stare, blame the parents. This book shows the beauty in it. Abria is living in her own world, completely content and innocent. She doesn't have to deal with the hardships like the rest of us. It seems like a dream from her position.Zoe has fallen in love with an angel. Now that's about as forbidden as forbidden loves gets. The two of them can never really be together in life, but it's too late because their hearts belong to each other. Talk about a painful existence, for the both of them. Still yet, their journey to love is beautiful. We see Zoe changing throughout the story.I loved the ending. While it took me by surprise, I really liked it. I would've been fine with her wrapping it up right then, but of course I'm always open for a sequel!
