But her life falls apart, very publicly, when her father gets in trouble with the law, and her mother has her own demons to battle. No one seems to have any room for Divine, except her uncle, a pastor in Georgia with a modest country home and a big heart.
Sent to live in the sticks, Divine is quick to let everyone know of her displeasure. Doing chores, getting an allowance, and church-going are hardly what she's used to, but her patient Uncle Reed and Aunt Phoebe, and her cousins, Alyssa and Chance slowly soften her heart. As the love and faith of a good family take hold in her heart, miraculous changes start to take place. But when she has the chance to return to her high-flying life, Divine is faced with her toughest decision: Now that she's found the one thing she's never had, could she ever leave it behind?

The daughter of two Hollywood superstars, Divine Matthews-Hardison lives the privileged life most fifteen-year-olds only dream of: she's all about designer clothes, awards ceremonies, parties, and having a name that opens doors. Divine could be a model, an actress, anything she wants. But when you live in the spotlight, there's nowhere to hide when your family falls apart. Her father is in trouble with the law, her mother has her own demons, and no one has room for Divine -- no one except her uncle, a Georgia pastor with a modest country home and a big heart.
. . . but can Divine ever forgive?
Divine can't believe she's been sent to live with her mom's family in the sticks. Doing chores, getting an allowance, and church-going are hardly what she's used to, and she lets everyone -- from her patient Uncle Reed and Aunt Phoebe to her cousins, Alyssa and Chance -- know she's not trading in her Gucci bags for a feedbag any time soon. But as the love and faith of a good family take hold in her heart, miraculous changes start to occur. And when the chance comes to return to her high-flying life, Divine is faced with her toughest decision: Now that she's found the one thing she's never had, could she ever leave it behind?
I.T.4 Stars Out Of 5July 5, 2007I.T.Simply Divine started off kinda slow for me, but this is definitely worth reading. My main problem was Divine herself. I didn't like her at all! Based on that I almost returned the book. But I kept going (how often do ya read of a spoiled B.A.P.?) and I'm glad I did.
