DIVA by Carrie Duffy

All Dionne Summers wants is to escape her poor background living in Detroit. Dionne dreams of making it as a supermodel. She is a confident, determined young woman, who is not afraid to go after what she wants

Shy and quiet Alyson Wakefield, also is desperate to escape her background. Brought up in Oldham in the north of England, she has been the primary carer for her mother since her father walked out with her younger brother almost a decade ago. Innocent Alyson does not know how beautiful she is. Alyson gets a chance to follow her dreams and to live her own life. She takes it.

Dionne and Alyson both end up living and working in Paris sharing an apartment. They also share with an up and coming fashion designer called CeCe Bouvier. Three girls all full of ambition and determined to make it to the top. Friendships are made; pacts are formed to help each other along the way. But what will happen along the way when the girls have to face broken promises, jealousy, love and tragedy. Will their friendships stay strong?

This is another smash hit of a novel from talented author Carrie Duffy. Once again strong female leading characters with bucket loads of ambition, make this book a compelling read. This book differs and stands out from other Chick Lit books in many ways; the characters don’t have to have a man in their lives and a loving relationship for the happy ever after. I like the way that the characters are independent and have the determination to stand on their own feet to make things happen and to get what they want out of their lives.
