Author Kami Garcia on Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel
One of my favorite books of 2014 is definitely Lauren Sabel’s YA novel Vivian Divine Is Dead. Vivian is a Hollywood “it” girl whose entire life is chronicled by the paparazzi. But when her mother is murdered and Vivian realizes she’s the next target, she takes off for Mexico. An entitled Hollywood starlet hiding out on the bus is funny enough, but things only get worse for Vivian. With the help of Nick, a handsome local who might not be what he seems, Vivian is drawn deeper and deeper into a mystery that takes center stage.
The story has a little of everything I love in a novel—humor, romance, twists, and a sense of urgency that makes it impossible to put down. Vivian's voice is compelling and authentic, and as the plot twists turned darker, I found myself rooting for Vivian even more. It takes a powerful novel to make me cry, and by the end of Vivian Divine Is Dead, I was sobbing.
