My Review
Because I've been swamped with other books to read and review, it took over a year for me to pick up and read this book! I was disappointed with it.

Each paragraph is written in the first-person voice of one of the contestants of the reality television game show that is the setting for this novel. The theme contains an obvious homosexual agenda. The plot moves at a steady pace, with a predictable ending.

Hi Sal,

I read this book back in the Spring, and we actually got to chat with Carolyn Parkhurst. It was a kick! I loved the book. I think it has a lot of relevant things to say about our society.
Blessings, Andie
