Item description for Divine Confidential (The Divine Series #2) by Jacquelin Thomas...
Overview While living with her aunt and uncle in Georgia, Divine, a fifteen-year-old girl, meets someone she thinks is the perfect guy on the Internet.
Divine is used to getting what she wants....
Thanks to her loving Aunt Phoebe and Uncle Reed, Divine Matthews-Hardison has a place to call home after the Hollywood life she was accustomed to fell apart at the seams. Getting away from the spotlight that nearly destroyed her own parents, Divine has changed for the better -- though there's still enough diva in Divine to keep life in Temple, Georgia, very lively, from mall shopping with her cousin Alyssa and her fashion-challenged aunt, to worshipping at her uncle's church, to dating.
But what if it's too much too soon?
Divine has boys on the brain and she's itching for a social life -- at least as much as is allowed under Uncle Reed's watchful eyes. She knows she's too young for the kind of secretive drama her cousin Chance is going through with his girlfriend, but still.... Turning to the internet, Divine gets a major crush on sixteen-year-old Sean, who sounds and looks like the perfect guy. But she is about to learn a difficult -- and potentially dangerous -- lesson: Things are not always what they appear to be....

Reviews - What do customers think about Divine Confidential (The Divine Series #2)?
A Must Read for Teens Jan 12, 2008
The Ups and Downs of Being Round Taste My Soul
Once again Jacquelin Thomas has brought a very serious issue that teens are facing to the light...online safety. The characters are real. The situations are real, and the book is entertaining from cover to cover.
Monica Marie Jones Author of "The Ups and Downs of Being Round" and "Taste My Soul"
Very Good Read for Young Adults Sep 19, 2007
I have given this book to one of the young people in our ministry. I plan to purchase a couple of additional copies to give to a couple of the other Young Women in our ministry. The book hit on a lot of subjects that pertain to teenagers in our churches today. The book was not a difficult read at all, but told the truth about life and the consequences to our decisions.
Ignorance Is Not Bliss Mar 2, 2007
Ignorance: 1) a lack of knowledge; 2) a willful lack of desire to improve the efficiency, merit, effectiveness or usefulness of one's actions; 3) the state of being ignorant/unaware
Bliss: A state of extreme happiness
For Divine Mathews-Hardison, the combined definitions above become a painful lesson learned.
In this sequel to Simply Divine, we find the self-proclaimed 15-year-old diva and new Christian, ready to resume her life in Temple, Georgia with her Aunt, Uncle and cousins.
As mature as she believes she is, Divine finds that her determination to be the object of worship by her 'boo' can have catastrophic consequences.
In spite of sound advice dispensed by family and friends, we see the head-strong protagonist forge ahead with her plans for bliss, believing she knows what is best for her life. She will soon find that her plans, although seemingly sound, have many flaws.
Although a story of fiction, through the family setting, Author Thomas does a great job of portraying the consequence of choice by teens overwhelmed with raging hormones, peer pressure and personal insecurities. Open dialogue between the characters is realistic and speaks to unasked questions of children in need of answers.
In a world where teen promiscuity and allowance of self-governing is viewed as acceptable, there will be many who will take exception to the content of this book. I find the message in Divine Confidential refreshing and believe it will be of value to many standing at the crossroad of indecision.
