Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9. Chelsea, 18, can't believe that someone as "normal" as she would be picked as a summer intern at Trash, a nationally syndicated New York-based TV talk show. She is excited at the prospect of leaving Tennessee, but slightly dismayed at working on a "no holds barred" type of show where anything goes. Chelsea meets the five other high school graduates from across the country who were selected at the same time. The group is quickly thrown into "real life" behind the scenes of a television show and Chelsea is attracted to Nick (the cutest guy) and targeted by Roxanne, a senior intern who seems to hate her. Romance, intrigue, and action are combined to bring a sense of fun and excitement to this novel. While most of the scenarios are too stereotyped to be believable, the fast-paced story line engages readers with contemporary characters and humorous subplots. The authors incorporate the latest trends into this novel and compare the characters to popular stars (Chelsea, a "brainy Alicia Silverstone type"; Lisha, "hotter than Demi Moore"; etc.), which will date it quickly. Ephemeral light series reading.?Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"My father was a mass murderer"--so begins another collaborative series between wife and husband team, Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld. The narrator is Chelsea Jenning, an 18-year-old Tennessean chosen for a summer intern job in New York City at Trash, one of the nation's sleaziest, hip new talk shows. Chelsea and two other female interns--Karma Kushner and Alyssa "Lisha" Bishop (an old best friend of Chelsea's from grade school)--are put in a great loft, just across the hall from three other great-looking guy interns: Nick Shaw (the guy Chelsea falls for, even though Jazz Stewart, the hostess of Trash, deems him her boy toy), Alan Van Kleef, and Sky Addison. (Note: Everybody in this book looks/sounds like some celebrity: Chelsea looks like Alicia Silverstone; Karma sounds like Fran Drescher; Lisha looks like Demi Moore; Sky looks like Keanu Reeves, etc.--hence nobody is ugly, which gives this book/series a rather superficial feel.)
Once on the job, Chelsea barely uses her brain or talent and has serious doubts about staying, especially when her past is threatened to be revealed on national TV: of her father going mental one day and shooting a restaurant full of people, then trying to kill her and her mother.
The title of this book/series does give a hint of what to expect, e.g., a hostess that almost bares it all on live TV, talk show topics like "Transvestite Teen Girls versus Real Teen Girls--who's sexier?" So, it's basically a tamer version of the Jerry Springer show for teens. The writing will appeal to young teens; it's humorous, light, and fluffy with some romance and drama thrown in for good measure. Certainly recommended to Cherie Bennett fans.

Trash is sort of like a soap opera but cooler, because there is definitely a plot! I love it!
