“Devine Intervention” by Martha Brockenbrough is a comedy wrapped up in suspense, stomach clenches, and an urge to keep turning the pages, even if your beliefs are not the same as what the author portrays in this book.
Jerome Hancock is not the type of guardian angel covered in white, with sparkly wings and a halo. In fact, he’s pretty much the opposite of that. He made some major mistakes on Earth, and his life was cut short by an arrow to his head. But instead of going to Hell, he has a chance to redeem himself and get into Heaven by doing SRPNT (Soul Rehabilitation Program for Nefarious Teens), aka, becoming a guardian angel to Heidi Devine.
Heidi is also a teen, but she isn’t dead. Yet. After a serious mistake by Jerome, her life and soul are in danger. Jerome accidentally pulls her soul out of her body, and Heidi only has 24 hours before her soul disappears, because she didn’t get pulled into Heaven or Hell. Is that enough time so set things straight, and possibly have to say goodbyes to her family and friends? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
There were some parts in this book that I enjoyed, but other parts were a bit weird. There is a huge twist at the end that caught me off guard. This novel is definitely rated ages 12+ for a reason, though. There is quite a bit of adult content and swear words in this book (but not a huge amount of swear words, because an angel’s head gets buzzed if they say a swear word). This book isn’t the best I’ve ever read, but it is worth reading.
