I’ve had this book for over a year, but I’ve hesitated to post about it. I was bullied as a kid, so I have a hard time picking on specific people–especially people this crazy. The turning point for me was realizing that “Tina Michelle” is almost certainly not the author’s real name. Also, if she gets really upset about this post and tries to end it all, we can take solace in the fact that an African American angel will save her. Read on to learn more!
I bought this book for three dollars at one of those shops that has to be a drug front. It has no customers, yet it’s been thriving for the better part of a decade. Kind of like the store in my old hometown that was selling Buzz Lightyear novelty telephones in 2008.
Anyway, this is a book about angels. More specifically, about angels as they’ve appeared to an Appalachian woman with the improbable moniker Tina Michelle. I’m not referencing the Appalachian thing to drum up any latent prejudices against “hillbillies,” by the way. Tina Michelle herself mentions it on the back cover. Apparently “her Appalachian humor embraces her audiences, as her teaching technique unfolds their inner knowledge.” That’s right, this woman is a motivational speaker.
Something else she mentions on the back cover (and countless times throughout the book): Tina Michelle has almost died four times.
Tina Michelle has been snatched from the jaws of death by her guardian angel on four separate occasions. That sounds nice until you really think about it–her guardian angel has almost let her die four times. Wouldn’t that be a sign that her guardian angel kind of, well, sucks at his job?
