I am looking for a book for young adults. I have read it in the past and that must be some years by now. I guess I read it 2010 to 2015.
The plot is about a girl that first gets some "bumps" on her back then these rise to real wings. She tries to hide them as she continues to claim to be a normal girl going to school etc. She is embarrassed by the situation and tries to hide it. She binds the wings to her back with bandages/cloth/... so no one will notify the "misshapen" wings.
No one explains anything to her. At some point she was invited to a costume party (of some sort) by a friend of hers and just went there "masked" as angel. She entertains herself again and uses a TV remote (?) to "control" the wings.
Some older angel finds her here there and harshly takes her away as she was never meant to handle the situation on her own. In fact, she should have never shown herself to the public with her wings.
I think she was in danger by the big antagonists (daemons, whatever) and in fact the older angel saved her from being kidnapped (?), especially as she is completely untrained and would thus be vulnerable.
The rest of the story is a blurry mess in my brain, so I cannot tell you more about it.
I think I read it on my Kindle library but I am not sure and I am not able to find anything matching. The story also seems not too clear in my brain to allow me to Google it efficiently.
I am not sure about the type of the book. I did not hold it physically in my hands. So, I am unsure about the number of pages let alone if it was a novella, a novel or even (the start of) a series.
I bought quite a lot of low-budget titles back then on Amazon. It was a Kindle book for sure. There are a lot of books in my library that I believe were published as ebook only. This could hold true for the book in question as well.
Also, I am unsure about the language. I could have read it in English or in German. Both would be okay; I would just need an initial "hook".
I even tried to use ChatGPT to no success. I was forwarded to a (ominous) book "The Gift" from Marcus Sedgwick. I however nowhere found anything that indicated that book was ever published (neither amazon not google did even indicate any useful hit).
