Publisher's Summary

Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage. The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises at every turn of the page.

Something is amiss at the Hotel Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother’s absence.

The quirky tenants - a hilarious mix of misfits and rabble-rousers from days gone by - rely on Alexis all the more when they discover a plot to sell the Hotel. Can Alexis save their home? Find her real father? Deal with her surrogate dad’s dicey past? Find true love? Perhaps only their feisty pet crow, Habib, truly knows.

Provoking interesting questions about the creative process, this novel is by turns funny, scary, witty, suspenseful, beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected.

    Story
    "Bold effort. No success"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    unredeemable. start again from scratch, perhaps with one author


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    the plot becomes fantastical and interest is lost rather than gained


    Did Pam Ward do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    characters weak, differentiation would not help


    Could you see Hotel Angeline being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    Story
    "Too Many Writers!"

    It starts out rather engaging and then some of the authors begin to use the story for their own political views and ended making a mess of the plot and even messier characters.

    Story
    "Fine Story But....."

    This was a fine story but the ending left me with the unanswered question of how the Hotel Angeline ended up as it did? The future of the hotel was a main point throughout the story but how it came to its final status seems to have been lost. Ending felt very rushed!
