Life has returned to routine for Mitch. Mostly. He's had to find a new kind of normal after his dad drowned, saving a local kid. But now there's a new girl in Mitch's class and she's stirring things up. Her name is Max, she dresses a bit like a goth,and suddenly seems to be everywhere.
One night, Mitch sees Max and she looks different. She has... wings. Big feathery wings. Surely he must have dreamt it. But no. It turns out Max is an angel, but not quite how you would imagine one. She is Mitch's emergency rescue angel, and just the kind of friend you want on your side when life gets tricky.
