BOOK REVIEW: Something Real by Heather Demetrios


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, 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 that 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.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 9 days until 13!


This book was wonderful! 

My favorite character is Bonnie because she stands up for herself even when others try to stop her, she succeeds. This shows how strong and determined she is. 

My favorite part is when Bonnie and her brother team up because it is touching. They care about and believe in themselves more than anything else in the world which is very sweet. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes drama, romance, and determined characters with an unbreakable will. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up. 

**Arianna was able to interview the amazing Heather Demetrios face-to-face at the Texas Book Festival and we hope to have the interview up soon. Still looking for someone with Dragon Dictation software to help us out!!
