"In Diva, the companion to Alex Flinn?s YA novel Breathing Under Water, Caitlin is dealing with a lot. She?s living through the aftermath of an abusive relationship, she has a youth-obsessed mother who just doesn?t understand her, and she?s on a constant yo-yo diet to live up the standards of her nitpicking friends. All Caitlin wants is to escape her not-so-glamorous life and pursue her dream of becoming a singer, but when she?s accepted into the Miami High School of the Arts, her life doesn?t magically become perfect. Yet despite some struggles to keep up with her competitive classmates and the distraction of cute new crush, Caitlin never loses her sense of humor and eventually gains the confidence to achieve her goals." -- from publisher's website.

I would read it again. It was well written.

Dysfunctional single mom having an affair with a married guy, severely messed-up diva who loves opera. Diva's gay crush. (The crush is gay, not the diva.) Mix and take cover.

I didn't realize until after I read this that it is a sequel to "Breathing Underwater." It is fine as a stand-alone book.

I was originally introduced to Alex Flinn several years ago with "Beastly," a great twist on a fairytale and decided to check some of her other works out. Diva was not a disappointment.
The plot is well structured and Caitlin was a likeable main character. But more importantly, Diva was a real eyeopener for me. I never really thought about opera before and it was low on my list... After Flinn introduced me a little better, I decided to go out a see an opera -- Amazing!
