by Father Craig Harrison
Illustrated by Linda Brown
A touching tribute to Lauren Small, a young girl who passed away at the age of eleven of cancer, Angel Girl breathes the words of young Lauren, sharing with readers how her life was really part of Godís plan for her to be an Angel Girl.
As the book begins, God is addressing a myriad of unborn children, telling them about the contest He is going to hold: Whichever girl is able to teach love to everyone around her will be crowned Angel Girl. Whenever young Lauren gets sick, she realizes this is her challenge and sets out to share love with her doctors, nurses, and fellow hospital patients.
Angel Girl involves all its readers, asking them to share love as Lauren does. She teaches us that obedience to and trust in God is also necessary to understand His plan for all of us.
