New Wings by Donna Stanley

Debut novelist Donna Stanley weaves a tale of good versus evil in New Wings, but the stakes are higher in this than in your average teen novel. This one hits the supernatural battle between angels and demons, and young Olivia Stanton is right in the middle of the action.
Olivia  has a gift, she's able to see her guardian angel, not only see him, but talk with him as well. He, in turn, is able to warn her when her friends need help.
She doesn't always get it right though, and sometimes her angel needs to rush to her rescue. She learns in time to trust the voice that she's getting used to.
Some of the battle scenes are intense, just what young readers these days like. This book was doctrinally sound and used scripture to back up different parts.
There is a lot to learn in this novel, it will teach teens how to engage in spiritual warfare without being afraid as it reminds them who the ultimate victor is.

From the back cover:
Olivia Stanton always knew the Bible says guardian angels exist. But, in all her seventeen years, she assumed they only showed up when people were dying or needed rescue from sudden disaster. Her assumption is shattered with the appearance of her own guardian angel-in the form of the good-looking Mike, no less. As Olivia gets to know Mike, more and more of her misconceptions about the spiritual realm are revealed. And, as her spiritual eyes are opened to the presence of angels all around, she'll find they can be good or evil.

This book was provided for review by Glass Road.
