Review: Something Real by Heather Demetrios

Review Haiku
Reality shows-
Fun to watch. But what about
the people involved?

Something Real is the story of the Baker family, former reality TV show family, and currently about to start a surprise new season!

The eldest Baker, Bonnie (who would much rather you call her Chloe these days) is really not happy about her mom and stepdad selling them out and putting her family back on TV for another round of Baker's Dozen. And yes, there is literally a baker's dozen (thirteen) of Bakers- Bonnie, Benton, Lexie, Farrow, Riley, Gavin, Tristan, DeShaun, Deston, Lark, Daisy, Violet, and Jasmine.

Now Bonnie wants more control in her life. After the series supposedly ended four years ago, Bonnie spent a long time trying to shake off the feeling of being a reality show start, changing her identity and going by a new name. But it's hard with cameras in her face all the time.

If you've ever wondered just how much "reality" there is in reality TV, or what goes on behind the scenes of all those TLC families, then this book is definitely right up your alley.  Definitely an interesting read.
