Thanks to everyone who responded to my call for angel fiction. It seems I am not the only one who is curious about the impact of these heavenly hosts on YA Fiction. The Guardian has also explored this teenage fiction cult http://www.theguardian.com/books/2010/apr/04/teenage-fiction-cult-angels and though the fiction list is limited it usefully mentions one or two critical studies on angels that could be drawn on for teaching. I am compiling my own angelography though (with some help from bill-the-bloody) so more on this soon. Love to hear from you if you have any suggestions for the list!!
