Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood By Rebbecca Wells Final Reflection
The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is about the relationship between a daughter and a mother. Their relationship is quite strained and complicated. Vivi, the mother, decides to stop talking to Sidda, her daughter, after she reads a newspaper article about Sidda that cliams that Vivi was a horrible mother which Sidda did not say. Sidda does convince her mother to send her the scrapbook made by her mother and her three best friends for a play she is working on. Sidda learns a lot about her mother through the scrapbook. She learns how difficult her mom's childhood was and helps her to understand why her mother is the way she is. Sidda and her mother's relationship still remains complicated at the end but it has improved. I really enjoyed this story and thought that it was really well written. I found ti interesting to read about Vivi's breakdown and her descent to craziness.
