For Real by Alison Cherry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn't sure about this one because the premise sounded, well, a little lame. So glad I was wrong! Ok, yes, there's a huge degree of predictability here but there is a great twist at the end that makes up for much of that.
Teens today are into reality shows and the shows are getting more and more bizarre, so the ones that Claire is so well-versed in actually sound plausible. It's also highly plausible that the producers would change the format and premise of the show Claire and Miranda are on (just think about all those ambushed guests on shows like Dr. Phil!). I won't go further because 1. we all know what to expect from reality shows and 2. I don't want to spoil anything.
This feels like a great read for any teen.
