    I just looked it up on Amazon and downloaded a sample to my Kindle. I know you read a lot of books and if you give it 5 stars I trust it’s going to be a good one. Definitely a relevant topic. Thanks Margo.

    This sounds like an interesting book. I am sure it will definitely fit into the YA niche and probably help some teens. It sounds like it shows how to survive a
    broken home.

    Would be tempting to let my 12 year old daughter read it if it weren’t for the sex. Not crazy about the violence and abuse either for a girl my daughter’s age.

    Wouldn’t mind her reading about the girl’s hard work cooking, cleaning and selling at the auction. Might encourage her to help out a bit more. :)

    I would be most interested in reading this. I was a child of divorce. I can see this book is not like any of the divorces I personally experienced but it sounds most interesting. I want to hear the voice.

    I’m also a child of divorce (as a teenager at college), and divorced myself (no children involved). So I would be interested in reading this story, too. Thanks for the review and blog offer.

    @Steve: I probably would let KM read this book. There are A LOT of four-letter words and the dad is AWFUL. :) I would probably say: 16 and up. . . ??

    @Susan and @Penelope: The voice is wonderful, and I think you would both really enjoy it.

    @Amie and @June: Thanks for stopping by!

    This sounds like a great read, Margo. The topic continues to be relevant. I think it may be more important for adult parents who are divorced to read it. Parents really have to understand how divorce impacts their children and their perspective. It’s much more than sitting them down and saying, “This isn’t your fault. We still love you. You’ll just have two houses.” I wish it really were that simple. Thanks for telling us about the book.

    Well you had me at YA! ;) No really, sounds very interesting and a little different than what I generally read.

    Congratulations Holly! I got to this too late but I’m sure it will be an intriguing read for you.

    Enjoy it!

    [...] Cube Press is a wonderful small publisher that also published DIVORCE GIRL (see my post:http://margodill.com/blog/2012/07/30/the-divorce-girl-blog-tour-and-giveaway-ya-or-adult/ ) which is one of the best books I read last [...]
