Reality Check by Jen Calonita
Released: June 14th 2010 (first released May 28th 2010)
Page Amount: 288, US Hardcover Edition
"Sixteen-year-olds Charlie, Keiran, Brooke, and Hallie have just been signed up for their own reality television show. They can't even believe it. "You'll be The Hills meets The Secret Life of the American Teenager," the Armani-suited executive tells them, "and the hottest thing on our network." How could they say no?
But soon enough, cameras following them everywhere and interfering producers surreptitiously scripting their lives start to affect the four best friends' relationship. Brooke seems to want all the screen time. Keiran is abruptly written out of the show-and consequently the group's friendship-when she doesn't rate well. As soon as Charlie realizes what's going on, she figures out the perfect way to give the studio and her home audience a much-needed reality check.
Because friends don't let friends do reality shows."

Being that I loved Jen's Belles series. I wanted to read more of her work. So I picked up Reality Check. I felt like I was reading an skit from The Hills. I just didn't care for it. And put it down for a bit.I pushed myself through to finish.
I know so may find this a cute and light read. But for me it just wasn't my cup of tea.
3/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
