Goodreads Summary:
The only thing 17-year-old Jane Sinner hates more than failure is pity. After a personal crisis and her subsequent expulsion from high school, she’s going nowhere fast. Jane’s well-meaning parents push her to attend a high school completion program at the nearby Elbow River Community College, and she agrees, on one condition: she gets to move out.

Jane tackles her housing problem by signing up for House of Orange, a student-run reality show that is basically Big Brother, but for Elbow River Students. Living away from home, the chance to win a car (used, but whatever), and a campus full of people who don't know what she did in high school… what more could she want? Okay, maybe a family that understands why she’d rather turn to Freud than Jesus to make sense of her life, but she'll settle for fifteen minutes in the proverbial spotlight.

As House of Orange grows from a low-budget web series to a local TV show with fans and shoddy T-shirts, Jane finally has the chance to let her cynical, competitive nature thrive. She'll use her growing fan base, and whatever Intro to Psychology can teach her, to prove to the world—or at least viewers of substandard TV—that she has what it takes to win.
This one just sounds like so much FUN.

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  2. The last book I read that had a reality show plot was great. This one has that and you have all the school drama that proceeded it too. I am looking forward to reading this one as well.

  3. Definitely going to read this one when it's out! :D

  4. This sounds neat! I think I saw this book shared on Twitter recently, otherwise I wouldn't have heard of it until now. I like the cover. :D Happy reading, Eileen!

    Have a wonderful day. =)
