Waiting on Wednesday 18 - On Thursday!!!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the SpineThe idea for this topic is to "spotlight" a book that we are waiting on. 

This week, I am waiting on: 
Devine Intervention by Martha Brockenbrough
Publisher:  Arthur A. Levine Books
Publication Date:  June 1st 2012
ISBN:  0545382130
Genre:  YA Paranormal
Book Description:  There is a great legend of the guardian angel who traveled across time and space for the human girl he loved, slaying those who would threaten her with a gleaming sword made of heavenly light.

This is not that story.

Jerome Hancock is Heidi Devine's guardian angel. Sort of. He's more of an angel trainee, in heaven's soul-rehabilitation program for wayward teens. And he's just about to get kicked out for having too many absences and for violating too many of the Ten Commandments for the Dead.

Heidi, meanwhile, is a high school junior who dreams of being an artist, but has been drafted onto her basketball team because she's taller than many a grown man. For as long as she can remember, she's heard a voice in her head - one that sings Lynyrd Skynyrd, offers up bad advice, and yet is company during those hours she feels most alone.

When the unthinkable happens, these two lost souls must figure out where they went wrong and whether they can make things right before Heidi's time is up and her soul is lost forever.

Martha Brockenbrough's debut novel is hilarious, heartbreaking, and hopeful, with a sense of humor that's wicked as hell, and writing that's just heavenly.
So, What are you waiting on this week?  


  1. I like the comedic tone set up by the blurb for this one.

    I hope it gets released on Kindle in the UK.

  2. I hadn't heard of this one before, but it sounds really funny!

    Thanks for stopping by WFTM!
