Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that's the premise for the ill-conceived reality show Waste of Space. The kids who are cast know everything about drama--and nothing about the fact that the production is fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state-of-the-art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show.
And it's a hit! Millions of viewers are transfixed. But then, suddenly, all communication is severed. Trapped and paranoid, the kids must figure out what to do when this reality show loses its grip on reality.

Review quote

"A sure pick for fans of sci-fi spoofs, black humor, and unusual formats." --Booklist

"Intriguing and at times hilarious . . ." -- SLJ

"Damico does for media frenzy and outer space what Libba Bray did for glamour pageants in Beauty Queens, taking this adventure all the way from comedy to sharp satire." --Bulletin
