Margaret Buffie is an award-winning author of young adult books. Her books include The Watcher and Angels Turn Their Backs. She lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.Review:
(Angels Turn Their Backs) is a gripping, intelligent novel and Buffie's readers will likely be willing to follow her in this new direction for the sheer enjoyment of reading her excellent prose and getting to know her original, thoroughly modern characters. -- Books in Canada
Angels Turn Their Backs is a wonderful book. (It) is superior especially for teens who have problems about fear and parents splitting up. Margaret Buffie uses the characters to the fullest extent in the story. ... Read this book and find out what happens to Addy's fear of going outside, and if she decides to finish the Angel for Lotta Engel, the old lady who could see angels. The characters really made the story. They complimented each other so well and there was even a little of the paranormal that made it all the more endearing to the heart and made it more realistic. Everyone can relate to the emotions, the actions taken in the story and cherish the story more for what it stands for and delight in the similarities found in their lives. -- Daily American
A girl hero is centre-stage in Margaret Buffie's Angels Turn Their Backs. It's Addy Jarrick's story, beginning with her parent's breakup and her move to Winnipeg with her mum. The formerly "high functioning" teen-ager begins to disintegrate: can't go to school, can't leave the house, can't get up. Panic. And more panic. Buffie's preoccupation with things heard but not seen, seen but not heard, is not absent in this very readable, psychologically acute novel. -- The Globe and Mail
Buffie has written a wonderful book about a girl caught up in agoraphobia. This novel is a must read! -- Simcoe Times Reformer
The author masterfully weaves diverse elements into a flowing and believable first person narrative, leaving the reader feeling that one has discovered a special friend. -- NAPRA
