The writing duo that brought us THE NANNY DIARIES have ventured out into the young adult genre. And the two have written a hit.
Jesse goes through the motions of the interview that all the students at her high school have to sit through. The hot TV channel XTV wants to film a documentary of life in a typical high school. XTV wants to select a core group of students to be the focus of the documentary real-life series.
Jesse knows that the A-list crowd including Nico, Jase, and their gang are the sure picks. So when XTV comes knocking on Jesse's door, no one is more stunned than she is. And when the $40,000 scholarship check is waved in front of her parents, they quickly agree to let Jesse sign on.
Little does anyone in their small town realize how quickly things will get out of control. Everything that Jesse considers important is thrust aside by XTV under the guise of filming. Jesse loses her best friend. Her parents no longer know what to believe. She gets yelled at and called obscene names.
When a photo spread in OK hints that Jesse may have done more with Jase then she is letting on, it's the last straw. She's lost her chance at the one boy she was truly interested in, and she'll do anything she can to just graduate and get out of there.
THE REAL REAL is the perfect book for a summer read. You can easily get lost in the fancy world that Jesse is paraded around in. THE REAL REAL shows what can happen when what you think you want turns out to be a total nightmare and reminds you what your real priorities should be. by TeensReadToo
