What do you do when you find an angel with a broken wing?
There are only two things Jelly likes about the new house on Rosemary Street: the old apricot tree and the creek over the back fence.
One night, Jelly and her cousins spot something in the creek's dark waters. At first they think it's a bird, but it isn't…it's a baby angel with a broken wing. They decide to keep it. But Jelly soon discovers that you can't just take something from where it belongs and expect that it won't be missed.
Sally Rippin's Angel Creek is a book about being brave and selfish and tough and scared. It's a book about an angel, about growing up. And about the amazing things that happen in the summer before high school begins.
'Hideaways, rescues, broken rules, and a girl who must protect something fragile and precious and out of this world…I loved this book.' Martine Murray
