I just got done reading "GREEN ANGEL" today and i'd like to say it's amazing!Honest to god, some parts of the story almost made me cry.I liked how things slowly got better for green as she began to find herself and help others out.This is the kind of story that reminds me that there's people out there that don't have it as good as many of us do.They have to make the best of it.I can relate to this story in a way.i've had problems finding myself kinda like she did.this has to be my favorite story.For those out there that don't like to read,it's probly because you havn't read a book that intrests or relates to you in any way.
