Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week I have selected DIVINE INTERVENTION by Martha Brockenbrough initially because of it's interesting cover. It sort of reminds me of Heaven Can Wait (movie from a long time ago) but then I read the synopsis and knew that it was something that I would enjoy.


Now that you have my WoW I would like to know yours, my curious mind cannot help it.

DEVINE INTERVENTION
(formerly listed as TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR THE DEAD)
by Martha Brockenbrough
ISBN-13: 978-0545382137
Arthur A. Levine Books
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads


Heavenly writing, earthy characters, and humor that is wicked as hell.

Heidi is seventeen. Insecure. Unkissed. Unremarkable, she thinks, in every way but one: She has a guardian angel, Jerome, who whispers in her ear all day long, amusing her, confusing her, but hardly ever saying anything that might help her discover who she's meant to be.

Jerome is also seventeen (for the seventeenth year in a row.) There is only one thing he needs to do to graduate from heaven's soul rehabilitation program for wayward teenagers: Follow the 10 Commandments for the Dead, and in doing so, keep Heidi safe. Instead, he accidentally lets her drown.

Plucked from her body before she ever truly lives, Heidi wants more than anything to say goodbye to her family and best friend. Jerome, afraid he's going to be sent to the lowest level of Hell, wants to sneak her into heaven before he gets caught.
Neither realizes that Heidi has only 24 hours before her soul dissolves forever. And that might not be enough time for them to figure out how they were meant to live.

Premise kind of reminds me of the Kissed By an Angel series by Elizabeth Chandler! I will definitely add this to my TBR pile.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
