Turns out being the only guy at an all-girls school isn't exactly a dream come true. Rafael Angelos just arrived at his new school to discover that there are NO other male students-and he's ready to milk that for all its worth. But while the girls at St. Mary's are ridiculously hot, they also take popularity, cliques, and bullying to new levels of crazy. So Raffi decides to step in. Protect the meek, smite the wicked, and maybe even win the heart of a beautiful victim while he's at it. Pretty soon, though, Raffi's gig as self-appointed "guardian angel" starts feeling...a little too realistic. All he wanted was to play the hero long enough to get a girlfriend-not to mysteriously spout three pairs of wings and a weird, glowing circle around his head. And in case figuring out he's an angel wasn't bad enough, Raffi just uncovered the reason so many of the girls at St. Mary's act like they're possessed by demons...
