Publishers Description "It's up to Divine to decide.... Growing up in the Hollywood spotlight -- and the tabloid headlines -- Divine Matthews-Hardison knows how tough it can be to keep secrets. And nothing has changed now that she lives in Temple, Georgia, with her kindly pastor uncle and his family. There's no such thing as privacy in their boisterous household -- Divine can't even get close to her boyfriend at a school dance without Aunt Phoebe monitoring her, while Uncle Reed drives her nuts, quizzing her on his Sunday sermons. But Divine is about to learn that some secrets do more harm than good when kept under wraps. "Does keeping silent help or hurt?" When she begins to suspect that her friend Mia's domineering boyfriend is abusing her, Divine must decide whether or not to expose a painful secret for Mia's safety. Meanwhile, her cousin Alyssa confides in Divine about her own boyfriend troubles -- how far should Alyssa go to keep him? With her mother in nearby Atlanta, Divine has a fresh chance at reconciling her family -- but she has to get past her resentments of Kevin, her mother's new boyfriend. With so much drama going on, will Divine be able to look to her heart and know how to help her friends -- and herself?

Reviews - What do customers think about Divine Secrets (The Divine Series #3)?
Domestic Abuse...not just an adult problem Jan 12, 2008
The Ups and Downs of Being Round
Once again Jacquelin Thomas has used real characters and realistic situations to teach valuable lessons in an inspirational way. She opened my eyes to the fact that domestic violence is not just an issue that adults and married couples deal with, but it is also happening to teens. The main character, Divine, gives young men and women a role model that is realistic, thus making it ok to stand for something positive when peer pressure tends to pull you in the opposite direction.
Even though I am pushing 30, I am totally hooked on this young adult series. This is the third one that I have read and I can't wait to read the next one. I wish this was around when I was a teenager.
As an educator and social worker I HIGHLY recommend this to young people everywhere.
