The Divine Divas are on their way! They won the local, and now they’re all set to wow the judges at the state competition in San Francisco. This hot, hip girl group is out to set gospel music on fire.
While India Morrow is happy her BFFs included her in the Divas, she knows she’s not cute like Diamond, cool like Veronique, or smart like Aaliyah. Maybe if she were supermodel-thin, like her mom, she’d stand out in a crowd, but dieting never seems to work for her. The Divas are poised to win the next level of the competition and India is scared she’ll let her friends down. With only fifty-eight days to get it all right, her cousin Jill tells her the secret — how to lose weight while still eating.
The pounds start falling away; India is finally getting lots of attention. If only she didn’t feel bad about keeping a secret. She’s scared of what her friends, parents, and Pastor Ford would say. What she’s doing isn’t so wrong, is it? All she wants is to be a star…but will the price be too great for her, body and soul?
