In My Mailbox (7)

This was a slow week for me but I still got a book.

Thanks Kristi for this Idea of IMM.

The one book I got was:

The Real Real by Emma Mclaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Imagine there was never a Laguna Beach, a Newport Harbor, the shimmering Hills. Imagine that your hometown—your school—is the first place XTV descends to set up cameras.
Now imagine they've trained them on you.
When Jesse O'Rourke gets picked for a "documentary" being filmed at her school in the Hamptons she's tempted to turn down the offer. But there's a tuition check attached to being on the show, and Jesse needs the cash so she can be the first in her family to attend college. All she has to do is trade her best friend for the glam clique she's studiously avoided, her privacy for a 24/7 mike, and her sense of right and wrong for "what sells on camera." . . . At least there's one bright spot in the train wreck that is her suddenly public senior year: Jesse's crush has also made the cast.
As the producers manipulate the lives of their "characters" to heighten the drama, and Us Weekly covers become a regular occurrence for Jesse, she must struggle to remember one thing: the difference between real and the real real.

This book looks really good and is the type of book I like to read

Thanks Garden of books(for teens) for the contest that I won this from. She even sent me a little note with it.

That's all I got this week. But only getting one book allows me read to catch up on my reading pile. And the last two weeks were really good.

Come back later to my blog and I will announce a challenge Reviewabook 123 and I are hosting this summer.
