Something Real

Finished Something Real by Heather Demetrios.  I received a copy from the publisher.

Summary (from Goodreads):

There’s nothing real about reality TV.

Seventeen-year-old Bonnie™ Baker has grown up on TV—she and her twelve siblings are the stars of one-time hit reality show Baker’s Dozen. Since the show’s cancellation and the scandal surrounding it, Bonnie™ has tried to live a normal life, under the radar and out of the spotlight. But it’s about to fall apart…because Baker’s Dozen is going back on the air. Bonnie™’s mom and the show’s producers won’t let her quit and soon the life she has so carefully built for herself, with real friends (and maybe even a real boyfriend), is in danger of being destroyed by the show. Bonnie™ needs to do something drastic if her life is ever going to be her own—even if it means being more exposed than ever before.”

I immediately loved this book.

No small part of that is due to Chloe (which is the name that Bonnie goes by) and her brother Benny.  Those two have a really great bond, one of the few that makes me really wish I had a sibling.  (In general, I am totally Team Only Child.)  But honestly, a lot of it is because of Patrick Sheldon, Chloe’s love interest.

Patrick Sheldon is PERFECT.  (I actually texted a friend that I would marry him except we are separated by four insurmountable obstacles: I am gay, he is very young—almost half my age—he loves Chloe and he isn’t real.)  He is smart, he is quirky, he is cute and he is a great and loyal person.

This became one of my all-time favorites even before I was done reading it, and I can’t wait to read her other books.

Highly, highly recommended.
