The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff, 363 pages, read by Melody, on 02/01/2012

There are only so many variations to so many stories that are possible.  So many books become clones to one another, different cover and different setting but still the same bones underneath.  Nothing is more disappointing that the feeling of deja vu as you finish the first chapter of a book.  Given all that, I still found The Space Between a worthwhile read.  Daphne is the child of a demon and a fallen angel who leaves Hell to save her brother on Earth.  She falls in love with a mortal boy and complications ensue.  The conflict between good and evil, heaven and hell,  is the fodder for a million stories yet well drawn characters and believable emotions make this worth reading.
