REALITY CHICK by Lauren Barnholdt is NOW IN STORES!

Going away to college means total independence and freedom. Unless ofcourse your freshman year is taped and televised for all the world towatch. On uncensored cable.

Sweet and normal Ally Cavanaugh is one of five freshpeople shacking upon In the House, a reality show filmed on her college campus. (As ifschool isn’t panic-inducing enough!) The cameras stalk her likepaparazzi, but they also capture the fun that is new friends, oldcrushes, and learning to live on your own.

Sure, the camera adds ten pounds, but with the freshman fifteen a given anyway, who cares?Ally’s got bigger issues — like how her long-distance bf can watch herloopy late-night “episode” with a certain housemate…

Freshman year on film.It’s outrageous.It’s juicy.And like all good reality TV, it’s impossible to turn off.

yes, but were you interested in the book before you posted about it, or did you just post to be entered in the contest?

That aside though, the book sounds like fun and I hadn't heard of it anywhere before. Now I'll look into it.
