In this powerful, lovely sequel to GREEN ANGEL, Green must learn the stories of a number of "witches" and free her true soul mate from a prison as she grapples with life, love, and loss in a post-disaster world.

- The love of books and reading is exemplified in the story Green’s teacher dictated to her. "It was a list of all the novels she had loved, along with a description of exactly where she’d been when she read each one." We all are profoundly affected by the books we read. Do what Green’s teacher did. Make a list of your favorite novels and the circumstances you were in when you read each one. Share the list with your group. Then pick a book that is on another’s list to read.
