Tiny Angel children’s chapter book by Nancy Carty Lepri
When her dad is transferred to a new town, Macy Carver leaves behind her best friend and everything she knows. Suddenly she’s 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.
Raleigh, NC, 2010 – Press release – Macy Carver is the new kid in town and she sure isn’t happy about it. With her father being transferred from Massachusetts to North Carolina, Macy left behind her best friend and all that she loved to start over in a new school where she is made fun of and bullied.
But when a flash of light announces the appearance of her guardian angel Jody, things start looking up for Macy. With Jody’s encouragement, Macy finds a way to fit in and make some true friends.
The unique aspect of Macy having a guardian angel supports and helps her along her journey through the challenging transition from the school and the best friend she lost to truly coming into her own at her new school and making new friends. And while Jody offered Macy the confidence she needed, she also motivated her to think of others.
While the messages in Tiny Angel are timeless, Lepri gives a contemporary feel to the story with having one of the characters being left alone at home each day after school while her divorced mother is off working. The insight into Susan’s character is also something very special.
Tiny Angel by Nancy Carty Lepri will quickly become your child’s favorite.
In this engaging story, your tween will learn how to appreciate their talents, disarm bullies, and find the importance of meaningful friendships.
A fun and inspiring chapbook for tweens.
Tiny Angel is offered in the CD, eBook and paperback venues, for sale through publisher, Guardian Angel Publishing, Inc., Amazon. Com, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.com.
