Teaser Tuesday (63): Something Real by Heather Demetrios

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Something Real by Heather Demetrios. It's really hooked me and I'm liking all of the drama so far, but I think it could still go the wrong way and quick if the drama gets out of hand. I have mixed feelings about the main character Bonnie. And the use of ™every time one of the Baker children's names comes up. It trips me up when I'm reading, but is easy enough to forgive since it's how Bonnie sees herself and her family.

I grab my pen and underline Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull. I bet I'm the only person here who really understands this.” 

{Something Real, Ch. 4}

Synopsis of Something Real:

There’s nothing real about reality TV.

Seventeen-year-old Bonnie™ Baker has grown up on TV—she and her twelve siblings are the stars of one-time hit reality show Baker’s Dozen. Since the show’s cancellation and the scandal surrounding it, Bonnie™ has tried to live a normal life, under the radar and out of the spotlight. But it’s about to fall apart…because Baker’s Dozen is going back on the air. Bonnie™’s mom and the show’s producers won’t let her quit and soon the life she has so carefully built for herself, with real friends (and maybe even a real boyfriend), is in danger of being destroyed by the show. Bonnie™ needs to do something drastic if her life is ever going to be her own—even if it means being more exposed than ever before.

  1. This reminds me of another book I heard of recently, about a girls whose family has a TV show… can't remember the name of it but the cover looked liked photo negatives. Anywho, I'm adding this to my TBR.
