About the Book

Anna is a typical high school student who is tired of writing boring research papers. When she decides to research angels, however, all that changes—in fact, her life changes. She learns that her grandmother and mother both know how to communicate with angels and that both have received signs from deceased loved ones. When she discovers her grandmother’s angel cards, she uses them to communicate with her own angels. After her presentation to her classmates, she reluctantly agrees to teach others how to use angel cards and is compared to a witch by the editor of the school paper. Anna faces the disapproval of her father, the vice-principal, and her best friend as her angels continue to leave her pennies as a sign of comfort. When she is asked to assist a famous author in teaching teens about angels, Anna is not sure can handle the pressure.

About the Author

Jeanne Lemmon Skinner has taught English for twenty years and is a graduate of the Ohio State University. She attended an angel workshop in Miami, Florida about ten years ago that was taught by Doreen Virtue. Her book is fiction, but the events that happen in the book are real experiences. She wanted to write something uplifting for teens. So much of what her students read in what she calls the teen issue genre is heavy and depressing.
She has found her students to be searching for something to hold on to. They represent various religions, and many have no religion. God is universal for all people and she believes that knowing His angels are there for everyone is comforting. It is her hope that young people, and old, will find hope by reading Hummingbirds, Pennies, and Hope. She lives in Columbus, Ohio and has three children and her husband has two. Together they have nine grandchildren and all regularly receive books from Grandma!
