Alex Flinn's Diva

It took a long time to locate a copy of this sequel to Breathing Underwater, which chronicles Nick's abusive relationship with Caitlin. Diva was completely different. While Nick is mentioned, the book is much more concerned about Caitlin's singing career and her acceptance into a school for the performing arts, where she fits in for the first time. She is still dealing with the aftermath of the relationship with Nick, as well as weight related issues (she was at one time very heavy but is keeping the weight off), but this book is more like Rallison's Fame, Glory and Other Things on My To Do List or Romano's Grace;s Turn than it is like a problem novel.

I like Flinn's writing. I think I'll buy it.
