    1. This book is comic relief from cover to cover. There are, of course, plenty of the "more serious" conversations and events in this book, but the author manages to keep the tone light for the most part. I read Devine Intervention after spending three hours in a zoology lab where I was classifying pinecones (I know, weird. I was doing botany in an animal laboratory). Brockenbrough’s book brightened my day and helped me stop categorizing ever bit of plant life I saw on my way home from college. H [...]


    2. DEVINE INTERVENTION had been a book on my wishlist for awhile. Specifically, since the first moment I heard about it. I knew without a doubt that I needed to read this book and that I would love it. See, I have a special place in my heart for afterlife fiction, particularly comedic afterlife fiction, and do you know what? My instincts did not fail me on this one. I am just going to come out and say it - this is a book that you should go out and buy right now because it is definitely going on my [...]


    3. (Ich habe jetzt mal die Inhaltsangabe vom Buch gelesen :D)Tränen lachen oder über das Leben nachdenken? Bei Echt mieses Timing geht beides!Gut, Tränen lachen finde ich etwas übertrieben, aber ich musste ab und zu doch schon mal schmunzeln oder etwas laut auflachen. Und "über das Leben nachdenken" regt das Buch auch an. Doch ich habe das Gefühl, dass es eher für Teenager geeignet ist, die durch das Buch lernen können sich und ihren Körper so zu mögen wie er ist und das es nicht schlimm [...]


    4. Heidi has an imaginary friend named Jerome. This wouldn't be unusual except for two things: she's 16 and he's actually her guardian angel. Jerome ditched the Guardian Angel Handbook and so he doesn't know that you're actually really, REALLY not supposed to talk to the people you're watching over. There's actually a lot more to this story than that, but I'm not mean enough to wreck it for you.I know what you're thinking. There are approximately three billion stories about angels (guardians or not [...]


    5. Death! Love! Euphemisms! Squirrels!This is the best YA book I have read all year: witty, wise, and populated by fully-human teen angels. The guardian angel business wasn't at all what I expected, what with the levels of hell involving microfiche and washing dirty underwear. One of the two protagonists has spent sixteen years being seventeen. You'd think that would make him good at it, but he still hasn't bothered to read the manual. I laughed aloud and wept with joy. The most important part - th [...]


    6. For me this was an okay book, a light (not exactly light) book to read when you lots of time on your hands.The main thing I liked about this book was the growth of both the main characters. It had just the right amount of humor and teen-angst and romance. On the other hand I felt it went the writing went too slow. At many points during the story I felt like giving up, and only my will-power urged me to finish it. Another thing is that the story line was too simple. It was like an idea a primary- [...]



    7. Rated 2.5 Stars.Jerome is your typical teenage boy "misfit" that finds himself on the rehabilitation side of Heaven. And by typical, I really mean, stereotypical: lives on the wrong side of the tracks with his drunk dad, has no future, can't stop thinking about "milk cartons" or short skirts, and acts without consequences--like letting his cousin shoot an apple off his head. Which is how he found himself in Heaven's rehabilitation program in the first place. His last saving grace is to be Heidi' [...]


    8. I think this gets three-and-a-half stars, but it's a rather special 3.5, so I don't want to put up either 3 or 4. It's a faltered-in-the-execution 3.5, but of one of my favourite types of book (of any genre): the really funny book that is also saying something about life, or emotions or relationships. Devine Intervention didn't quite manage to pull off funny - except in spots - and it seemed to make its own job of dealing with the real stuff much harder by the framework built around the funny.St [...]


    9. The Good Stuff The perfect book for reading after something dark and depressing The dialogue is laugh out loud funny Unique premise on the angel genre An Angel book that I enjoyed - seriously didn't think that could happen Couldn't put it down I was having so much fun reading it Fabulous beginning - knew I was going to like this from page one The cover is delightful Some beautiful and true observations on how to live life & about real courage Parents weren't total losers (must always give ex [...]


    10. Great voice! Jerome, a bit of a screw-up with attitude, gets shot in the head with his cousin's arrow and finds himself in soul rehab, where he's assigned as guardian angel to Heidi, a girl with confidence issues. Of course, he immediately "loses" his guardian angel handbook.On her website, Martha Brockenbrough calls herself an author of books for smart kids and juvenile adults, which couldn't be more on mark. This book is clever, hilarious, honest and insightful for almost any age.Can I say aga [...]


    11. A fated romancewith a girl who can't danceand a boy who's already deadHer spirit guardinept and scarredby the arrow once shot through his headHe has to saveher from the graveand the mess that might end her existing.A cut above!with lessons ofLife, the Universe, and Everything




    12. Jerome Hancock was ready to be nothing in life. He had no plans for college or even the near future. He had this delinquent way of seeing everything and nothing, other than getting into trouble, was on his mind. But then while he and his cousin, Mike, were out being stupid, Mike accidentally shot Jerome with an arrow and killed him.Now, Congratulations!Jerome, you have been selected for membership in SRPNT, the Soul Rehabilitation Program for Nefarious Teens (Deceased). This works for those who [...]


    13. Sometimes I start a new book and quickly realize that I'm reading something quite different from what I expected. Either the plot summary on the back cover lied to me, or it gave merely the barest hint at what the book is actually about. At this point, I either give up on the book (if it's boring or not going so well), or I stick with it (if it's well written or moderately interesting). And then sometimes, the book is so surprisingly lovely that I'm really glad to have finished it. That's the ca [...]


    14. Read more of my reviews at Dazzling ReadsHumorous, Deep and UnforgettableI love angel novels and, as I have said many times, they are my favorite mythological beings. However, Devine Intervention was nothing like the angel books I have read before. In fact, this is a very different twist from the book of Enoch. This is a story with emotional weight and a beautiful message that will definitely move readers and make them think about the meaning of life.The story is told from dual points of view. J [...]


    15. I was almost dreading reading this one since I thought it would be just like all the other books in which guardian angels must take care of their human charges amidst quite a lot of breast heaving, passion, love triangles, and remonstrations not to get involved with the human charge. But this book pleasantly surprised me with its humor, insight, and imperfect characters. Jerome Hancock is the guardian angel for Heidi Devine, a sixteen-year-old who plunges into an icy pond when the ice breaks thr [...]


    16. Not many angel books are hilarious and heartbreaking but Devine Intervention by Martha Brockenbrough is one of the few books that manages to be both. Jerome Hancock is Heidi Devine's guardian angel just not a very good one. Jerome is about to get kicked out of angel in-training school and be sent to Hell. His only chance is to help Heidi. Heidi dreams of being an artist but is instead a basketball player due to her height. Heidi has always heard a voice in her head, a voice that sings classic ro [...]


    17. I first spotted this in a bookstore and what really caught my attention was how "divine" was spelled wrong. I figured it was intentional (or at least I really hoped it was). It sounded pretty neat, and a few days later I happened to find it on the library shelf, not yet to have been read by anyone else. That's a pretty fantastic feeling.I thought it was cute and heartbreaking. Jerome's screwed up and he knows this. His job now is to watch over Heidi. I liked Jerome maybe because he wasn't perfec [...]


    18. 3 1/2 starsThis book was funny and entertaining. I really enjoyed reading it, though it wasn’t the best thing I ever read. There wasn’t really any romance. The only kind of love was the caring kind. The plot was pretty good. Jerome was definitely not fit to be anyone’s guardian, but in the end he tried his hardest to save Heidi. This is a story of redemption, the afterlife and ridiculous stuff that’d you’d have to read to believe. Jerome’s not very smart, maybe because of the arrow i [...]


    19. The best part about Devine Intervention was the humor. It was hilarious, and had me cracking up several times throughout the book.Jerome was really funny. He was extremely stupid, but that's part of what made him so funny. And you see that arrow coming out of his head on the cover? That's because he died when his cousin accidentally shot him in the head with an arrow. Whenever I think about that, my hand itches to rub my forehead to make sure it's arrow-free *rubs forehead*There were parts of th [...]


    20. Certain people have told me that they think it's weird that I laugh and cry out loud when I'm reading*. And because I also have been known to laugh when no one else is laughing and cry inconsolably while movie- and TV-watching, those very same people like to imply that my emotional outbursts are indiscriminate. I concede that I am perhaps weepier about and more amused by reading than your average Joe. But only when what I'm reading is GOOD. Which is why I was laughing and crying willy nilly whil [...]


    21. Truly a wonderful book. I read the whole thing in two days, it was that gripping and suspenseful. The characters are both relatable and lovable (albeit quite flawed) and the plot is extremely exciting and original. It made me laugh out and I even cried a bit at the end, a combination I haven't experienced since Garth Stein's The Art of Racing in the Rain. Although it's an "easy" read, it offers powerful and deep messages that are thought-provoking as well as entertaining. I highly highly recomme [...]


    22. It's no secret, I have a soft spot for dead teen books, so I couldn't wait to read this one. It did not disappoint. What I loved about DEVINE INTERVENTION was it's snarky humor and how it perfectly walked the line between a guy book and a girl book. I also adored the supplemental information like The Guardian Angel's Handbook, particularly the sarcastic notes on the bottom. But despite all the great snark and sarcasm, there was a thread of sweetness, vulnerability and hope that was impossible no [...]


    23. I really enjoyed the premise of Martha Brockenbrough's book, and there was some seriously great food for thought throughout regarding both life & the afterlife! I was "lucky" enough to interview Martha as well, so please look for that interview over at the Lucky 13s blog on June 1, 2012!~Nicole McInnesAuthor of BRIANNA ON THE BRINKHoliday House, 2013nicolemcinnes


    24. Love, love, love! This book is the perfect blend of funny and serious. There were points where I embarrassed myself in public because I couldn't contain the giggles and other times when I was wiping the tears from my eyes. A beautiful, fun, thought-provoking YA debut!


    25. Every so often a book by a new author comes along that as soon as you read the last page, you have the urge to begin it all over again immediately. That is the way I feel about Devine Intervention by Martha Brockenbrough.Read my review at: bit/MBARBn


    26. What a cute story! The cover alone was enticing! (but misleading)! Knew it would be fun. The ending will make you thinkabout the nature of love, second chances, life, destiny and hope. Would love to know the authors reasons for the ending.
