It's a Curl Thing

(Divine & Friends)

It is just about time for Rhyann Hamilton to go to her Sophomore Prom.  In preparation of this special event, her Auntie Mo has made her a beautiful copy of a Valentino gown she saw on Rodeo Drive.  She has even spent the last couple of years growing her hair out and is letting her sister Tameka do her hair.  When her sister messes up royally on Rhyann’s hair the day before prom, Ryann thinks that all is lost.  But her BFF Mimi sends her to her own hair stylist at Crowning Glory Hair Salon on Sunset Boulevard. The fix costs more than she had to pay.  The owner of the salon, Ms. Marilee is willing to allow her to work off the debt by washing the customers hair.  A chance encounter with a customer at the salon may just have a lasting effect on her life.

Best selling author Jacqueline Thomas writes faith based YA books.  This book is connected to the Divine series.  Written to entice young adults into reading more, the story line is one that will have you thinking about many different things.  The writing is better in each book I have read and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on any more books that might be available in this line of stories.

One subject that is covered in this title is one that we as a people need to remember.  Ms. Thomas hits on the topic of the Holocaust.  This is a subject that should be discussed more openly in not only families but also in school.  It’s good to learn the truth about this horrible time in our history for yourself.
