dedication: In memory of Jay Schnaper


The blurb on the back:

The last thing Cisco McCaine remembers is riding her motorcycle wildly into the night after an argument with her boyfriend. She awakes to find that a terrible accident has bounced her off a tree and right into Teen Heaven where she's learning what she must do to become a full-fledged angel.
Cisco's assignment is to return to earth and convince a famous rock star to turn his life around. Shayne's at the top of the charts and has everything to live for, but he's killing himself with drugs and alcohol. Helping a burnt-out druggie surrounded by adoring groupies change his ways seems hopeless, but Cisco soon finds out that there's a lot more to Shayne's story - and a lot more to him. What Cisco doesn't count on is falling in love...


opening lines:
'You're a danged tease, Cisco McCaine, that's what you are,' Jim Ryder drawled in a husky voice as he pulled Cisco close for another kiss.


Well, obviously I haven't read the book. I read the sleeve notes and that's quite enough for me. Back in the early-1960s this would have made for a perfectly adequate two-and-a-half-minute death disc, but I'm not prepared to spend an hour of my life reading it.

Just in case it should be your kind of thing, however, I would point out that there are another two novels in the Teen Angels series advertised on the back: Love Never Dies and Angel Kisses. I don't mean to sound prudish, but isn't this all a bit morbid?
