Diva – Alex Flinn

diva1

For most people, the word “diva” means brilliant and over–the–top. Caitlin, however, seems to be trapped in a not–so–glamorous life with serious ex–boyfriend issues and a permanent yo–yo diet. But when she auditions and gets into the performing arts high school, everything changes. Caitlin can sing like an angel, but it will take more than her voice to help her overcome her past and shape her future.

In this companion novel to Alex Flinn’s acclaimed Breathing Underwater, Caitlin puts her past as “the abused girlfriend” behind her and moves onward and upward to Diva–dom.

I did not realize at first that this was the sequel to Breathing Underwater, but it was really good to see how both Caitlin and Nick are adjusting after everyone found out that he beat her up. At first Caitlin was a little hard to relate to, but she becomes a really likable character as she discovers her own true self worth. Recommended. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
