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 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!!
