(Goodreads Summary)
In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

My Review

This is a must read.  Unearthly is about part-angel Clara who moves from California to Wyoming to follow her purpose (destiny)  She begins to have these visions about her destiny in which she has to save a boy from a fire.

Clara along with her brother Jeffrey and mother try to find out what her purpose is and when it will happen. Along the way she will meet new friends and love.  But what happens if she does not follows her purpose?

All of the characters in Unearthly are very interesting and unique. Her best friends Wendy and Angela are very different from her but they are critical in her life both in different ways.  Wendy's twin brother Tucker is by far my absolute favorite.  Funny type and sports kind of guy.  While Christian the boy from Clara's vision is the picture perfect boy.  Kind, humble and super hot.

I strongly recommend this book.  I give it five hearts and cannot wait for more about Clara.
