The author's writing is excellent, flows well and the dialogue is natural. The cover is excellent!
Having no idea what goes on behind the scenes of a "reality" show - and suspecting everything is contrived - I was not disappointed in the plot, but this work felt "realistic" in that the author didn't try to go too far over the top. Certainly, some of the characters were larger than life and obviously production companies choose them for that reason. Tension is well maintained, not the least of which is why Jen, a reasonable person, is regarded by the viewers as a person to be eliminated throughout the show. The revelation of the reason for this is a very clever tying up of the plot.
One aspect I particularly liked about this book was the lack of hysteria in the plot, in spite of the subject matter frequently being shown as chaotic and hysterical when shown on TV!
I would like to read more by this author :)
I love how the author avoided a lot of cliches I was expecting--the MC isn't bookish and shy (getting really tired of that one), her boyfriend at the start of the book is really nice and endearing (because I read so many books where the MC starts out dating a total jerk and I always think, what's the attraction? Maybe...don't date a jerk?). And the line, "The gay guy never wins these things." So sad, so true. The endearing gay guy is probably a strong second place finisher in lots of reality shows, huh? That sucks. Anyway, this book was a really fun read, and I enjoyed all the growing friendships and secret reveals throughout. Having the very end told through media coverage of the show was a fun technique and a great way to picture what happened to everyone afterward. 4.5 stars!
A reality show book basically demands a huge cast of characters, and I was impressed at how they all stood out. I particularly liked Birdie and Abram. For this reason, I was actually a bit disappointed in the romance--of all the characters, Justin was one of the ones I felt I understood least. I'd have liked to see more scenes with Justin and Jen. I also tend to prefer a villain with a bit more nuance, but that is definitely a subjective thing.
Overall, this was a super fun read. I enjoyed it a lot!
But the premise of reading a fictional account about how these shows happen and what goes on behind the scenes drew me in. This story hit all the sweet spots and then some. The main character set-up was perfect for the reader to root for her from the start. It would have been so easy for the author to write one-dimensional, stereotypical supporting characters. Glad to say it was the opposite. I could see these people as real. By the end of the book, I felt like they were old friends I wanted to keep in touch with, or not. The story's twists and turns kept me reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open, then right back at it over breakfast cereal the next morning and into lunch.
Before I began reading, I was looking for something lighthearted and fun. This book delivered and then some. Looking forward to now reading the sequel!
