Imagine that Laguna Beach, a Newport Harbor, and The Hills never happened. So, when your school and hometown is chosen for this show and so are you... This is reality for Jesse O'Rourke, who lives in the Hampton's and is far from rich. At first, she doesn't want to accept the check, but with the $40,000 check for college is more then desirable. So, Jesse does it. Her crush, Drew is in it and her best friend, Caitlyn is pissed that she is in it. As the show goes along, Jesse has to decide what is "real" and what is "Real Real"
It took me a long time to get into this book. There were a few thing that really bugged me in the middle. Jesse was okay. She did irritate me a few times. I liked Drew and how he wasn't as effected to by the show as much. I hated how she ditched her friends for the show and also hurt her parents feelings. It was fairly original plot wise. I did like the ending though.
Peace out Sarah.
