The Blue Door (The Threshold #1) by Christa Kinde


This is a very engaging story. Lots of different types of angels, all of a sudden Prissie can see and talk too.
Prissie is the main character in book 1. She comes from a big family with 5 brothers living on a farm. She is 15.

Prissie sees a stranger up in one of their trees barefoot. She said something to the boy and she thinks she is talking to someone else. He is used to not being seen but tells her his name is Koji. Then her mailman Milo that she has had a crush on for years ignores the teenager and just talks to Prissie.

Milo when he knows that Prissie can see Koji asks her to come with him if her mom will let her. Milo takes Prissie and one of her brothers to a used bookstore. They tell her they are angels. That some angels have regular jobs. Others like Koji are observers and not seen. Their are many angels of different types.

Also in the bookstore their are two doors in the back her brother can only see one. He can't see the blue door, or Koji.
Prissie freaks and spends the rest of the day at her fathers bakery down the street. She stays away from Milo for a while and ponders the question are their real angels? The more she knows is weird for her. She finds out that their is a war going on with angels and the fallen.

I liked The Blue Door. I liked all the characters and the different angels and types of angels. Prissie finds out that her house is crowded with all the different angels their.

Prissie has other teenage problems she feels that her best friends are replacing her. They all are changing and some are not for the better. Their is a new girl in town who tends not to like her but likes her best friends.
A boy who is always giving her a hard time is now working with her father at the bakery.

I can't wait to read the next book in the series. The Hidden Deep coming in Apr, 2013.
