Something Real

Something Real by Heather Demetrios, 406 pages

As someone who pretty much despises reality T.V., I loved this story. BonnieTM, aka Chloe, Baker is one of the oldest children from the show, Baker’s Dozen. The show has been off the air for four years, since she attempted suicide and her parent’s divorced, but now that she is 17, a senior in high school, and nearly adjusted to having a normal life, her mother is restarting the show. Chloe is devasted and not sure what to do. She doesn’t want to participate, and knows that once she graduates she can be free of the show forever. But isn’t sure she can wait that long, especially since she may have a possible relationship brewing with Patrick, the guy she’s been crushing on for a year. This was a fabulous book and one that I think a lot of teens would like, whether they love or hate these types of shows.
