Role Playing Mar 28, 2009
Divine and her boo, Madison , have tied the knot! Calm down, it's not real! However, as she and Madison are basking in the bliss of their honeymoon, the past keeps drudging up plenty of drama. If that isn't enough, Divine learns that she's not the only one with nuptials on the mind as her mom shares the news that Kevin Nash has popped the question. Is Divine ready to share her mom again?
Life in Temple, Georgia, may not be as fast, glamorous or loaded with the paparazzi as it was for her in California , but Divine is still making all the news. When people at school find out that she and Madison are married, soon all of the kids in Temple appear to be following suit. What lesson will Divine learn about the power that she possesses?
As always little Miss. Hollywood has to learn how to handle life while balancing another heart break, accepting Kevin and Ava as step-parents and realizing that may be she is too young after all for a commitment.
DIVINE MATCH-UP is educational as well as amusing and comes with a raving recommendation of course.
Teenage Love Jun 25, 2008
I can always gauge how much I enjoy a book by how quickly I read it. I read Divine-Match Up in less than 24 hours! I could really relate to the story because when I was Divine's age my whole world usually revolved around boys and whoever my current boyfriend was at the time.
The book addressed the very important and very real issue of teenagers being pressured into having premarital sex. It also brought to light another potentially serious issue that could have a negative effect on our youth, online marriage ceremonies. Currently it is big in Asia, but it could just as easily become popular here amongst our young people.
Even though I am not quite a young adult anymore, I enjoy the books from Divine Series just as much as I enjoy any other book.
Keep them coming Jacquelin!
