I love most of Creech's stories but this one missed the mark for me. There were some amusing elements (voice and word use i.e. peoples etc. as words the angel tries to figure out but doesn't quite get; it made me crack a smile or two) but not enough to make me recommend it as strongly as others like Hate that Cat, Love that Dog, Moo, Saving Winslow (my FAVORITE Creech story) and Boy on the Porch. Not bad enough to make me stop continuing on to her others, however; I just count this as "an off day" perhaps as much for me as for Creech.
