#1 - Simply Divine by Jacquelin Thomas
Simply Divine
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 14-18
Subject: Forgiveness, loving those different than you, being content with less, consequences of choices
Summary: Divine is all drama. With both parents being Hollywood stars, Divine has grown up with the idea that she can have anything she wants, whenever she wants it. When her parents suddenly both reap the consequences of some negative choices, Divine is sent away to live with her relatives in a small country town. Divine can't stand living with these "country" people - who expect her to do chores, wear cheap clothes, and attend Church every week. They, especially her cousin Alyssa, are getting tired of all Divine's drama. However, these country people have a few things Divine does not - primarily, a relationship with Jesus!
Notes: This series deals with the issues of forgiveness as Divine struggles to forgive her dad for the impact his choices had on her. It also deals with the normal teenage girl issues - boys, friendships, and fashion.
