Sixteen-year-olds Charlie, Keiran, Brooke, and Hallie live on the quiet and quaint North Fork of Long Island. It may not be glamorous but it is real and teen girls are where the drama is at - at least, that's the rationale of a television studio executive looking for the next big reality series. Thinking that Charlie and her friends might be THE next big thing, she signs them up for a show.
However, soon enough, having cameras follow them everywhere and interfering producers surreptitiously scripting their lives starts to effect their relationships. Brooke seems to want all the screen time. Keiran is scripted out of the show - and the group's friendship - when she doesn't rate well and as soon as Charlie realizes what is going on, she figures out the perfect way to give the studio and her home audience a reality check.
I love this book, and just breezed right through it. It was (as Aria puts it) an easy read. What may sound as a simple plot, had enough to make it unique. I love the interactions between all the characters. Despite the fact that a bunch of teens end up having their own reality show, it was quite realistic. There is one twist in the story that we all knew was coming, but the book ends with leaving the problem hang loose. When [if] you read this book, you'll understand what I mean.
Likes: The interactions between the characters was quite realistic; how any of us would react to the situations the girls were put into. Dislikes: The ending (read and find out).
