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 Ten 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 good-bye 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 twenty-four hours before her soul dissolves forever. And that might not be enough time for them to figure out how they were meant to live.

Martha Brockenbrough has worked as a newspaper reporter, a high school teacher, and as editor of MSN.com. She is a devoted grammarian, and founded National Grammar Day and the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG). Martha is also the social media diva for readergirlz, the nonprofit literacy organization that received the Innovations in Reading Award from the National Book Foundation. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and their two daughters.

Praise for Devine Intervention

"Brockenbrough devises a devilishly clever narrative...Beneath the snark, though, runs a current of devastatingly honest writing that surprises with its occasional beauty and hits home with the keenness of its insight." -Kirkus

"Brockenbrough's first book for teens [is] so much fun. Underneath the occasionally risqué humor and unexpected plot twists...is an insightful story about seizing life for all it's worth while you have the chance." -Publishers Weekly

"Brockenbrough's droll style delivers some laugh-out-loud moments. Reluctant readers will find the Heidi-Jerome dynamic entertaining and heartrending." -School Library Journal
