Reality Check Cover

..I'm not sure to what to think. I love Jen Calonita, and this book just sounds awesome, but dolls? I don't know...It's certainly cute!


Sixteen year olds Charlie, Keiran, Brooke, and Hallie live on the quiet and quaint North Fork of Long Island. It may not be glamorous but it is real and teen girls are where the drama is at - at least, that's the rationale of a television studio executive looking for the next big reality series. Thinking that Charlie and her friends might be THE next big thing, she signs them up for a show. However soon enough, having cameras follow them everywhere and interfering producers surreptitiously scripting their lives starts to effect their relationships. Brooke seems to want all the screen time. Keiran is scripted out of the show - and the group's friendship - when she doesn't rate well and as soon as Charlie realizes what is going on, she figures out the perfect way to give the studio and her home audience a reality check.

Reality Check will be released June 14 from Poppy.
Thanks to Callie of Handle Like Hendrix for bringing this one to my attention. (:

It makes me think of the Bratz dolls and the Pretty Little Liars covers. I don't know if I like it but thanks for pointing it out. =]

Hey, I know these dolls! They're pullip dolls, I collected them for a while (they're quite pricey in fact, that's the reason why I stopped collecting them in fact) They're cute dolls, but I think they look a little weird on that cover!

I love Jen's books but I hate this cover. They look weird and remind me of bratz too.

Ooh, actually I think I quite like the cover after all! Definitely adding this to my wishlist!

I'm not sure what to think of this cover either. The dolls on the Pretty Little Liars covers scared me off from reading them for awile. Haha. But I think I like this cover.

Creepy dolls! I like Calonita's work, but the cover is kind of scary!

I'm not amazingly keen on that cover, but I do like the premise a lot. Thanks for the heads up.
