Diva author Alex Flinn characters ä 7 ´ For most people the word diva means brilliant talented over the top and glamorous I however seemed to be trapped in the not very glamorous life of a cheerleader wannabe with serious ex boyfriend issues and a permanent yo yo diet At least until the day I auditioned for Miami High School of the Arts—and Es and a permanent yo yo diet At least until the day I auditioned for Miami High School of the Arts and got in All I had to do was convince my mother the cosmetics salesperson with epically bad taste. This is the seuel to Breathing Underwater but this time we get to see what's going on with Caitlin after the events of Breathing UnderwaterI love that we get to see the after affects of the abuse she suffered and how hard it is to move on from that I also loved the little glimpses into Nick's life and how he's changing but how that's not the focus of the story The real meat is in Caitlin and her choices to be brave and move forward with her lifeI think the new friends Caitlin makes are the kind of friends we should all strive for People who like us the way that we are encourage and support us and don't put us down to make themselves feel better I always thought Caitlin was too good for the people she surrounded herself with in the first book Even her original best friend wasn't really the greatest person for her but this new group of people are where I think she found her true friendsIf you wanted to know about Caitlin and her process in moving on from all that happened to her I think you'd love this book

Caitlin knows what she wants to be and it isn’t a cheerleader or the girlfriend of the hottest guy in high school Caitlin wants to be a diva—the kind who sings opera while being showered with roses She has the voice and the training for it—what remains to be seen is whether she can overcome her shyness and insecurity Readers of Alex Flinn will recognize Caitlin—she’s the abused girlfriend from Flinn’s critically acclaimed first novel Breathing Underwater She makes a reappearance in Flinn’s latest book released this month from HarperCollins Diva It’s being billed as a companion book and not a seuel as it now picks up Caitlin’s story with Nick being only on the periphery We do get to see of his recovery and learn of what becomes of their relationship but this book firmly belongs to Caitlin In some ways it is almost as if Flinn wanted to go back and give her character a happy ending—or at least a happier one She starts out the novel in the clutches of her new friends cheerleaders who obsess over every calorie and are as catty as they come Caitlin rightly decides she needs to escape from both these new friends and from the constant presence of Nick against whom she still has a restraining order She makes the escape by pursuing one of her dreams She auditions for and then attends a performing arts high school where she is surrounded by other kids with similar interests and dreams to herself Diva is a very readable book written firmly to its target teen audience While the talk of makeup and fashion may give it appeal to girls there is stuff for boys as well The book is far about pursuing one’s dreams and healing from past hurts than it is about being a girl The novel’s conflicts are primarily internal with very few real roadblocks put into Caitlin’s path that she doesn’t erect herself There are some clashes with a catty girl at school but nothing that presents a severe distraction to her It is Caitlin who holds herself back The relationship with her mother is complex and interesting It captures rather well the interplay between a teenage girl and her mother neither of whom can uite connect even when they want to The resentments and assumptions that both carry keep getting in the way Flinn does grant them a little bit of a break through but only enough that is realistic for the characters and relationship established Diva explores many issues that are of relevance to teenagers foremost among them the obsessions with dating and weight It takes Caitlin a long time to figure out that 115 pounds is not fat nor is it any reason to panic She keeps a daily record of her weight in an online journal and obsesses over every bite she consumes It’s hard to blame her though when she is surrounded by voices that make her feel like a “fatgirl” Flinn takes a pretty realistic look at the pressures a teenager can get that distort self image completely out of proportion At a book signing Alex Flinn says she hopes that girls who read Diva will take from it that there is something to life than boyfriends It’s a lesson that Caitlin seems a little slow to learn at first showing a willingness to bypass incredible opportunities on the chance that she’ll have time to spend with a particular guy However life continues to throw her curves which make her realize that there are other things in life than just dating a lesson she learns even before her mother does Diva is an easy to read book with a streak of breathy humor running throughout it It’s peppered with online journal entries which I kept expecting someone else in the novel to stumble across Those entries are written in the annoying but realistic Internet speak that constantly replaces “to” with 2 Alex Flinn does an excellent job of writing an entertaining story that gives teenagers something to think and
