The Real Deal: Unscripted

Claire has an opportunity to do a reality TV show about her big break into Broadway, but she learns that life on the stage and life on the screen are hard work and can create a lot of problems. Adding to this is her new relationship with her long-lost sister and her attraction to her co-star.

I read this as my random book for the Take a Chance Challenge. I had originally picked the 1st bay, 2nd shelf, 8th book, but those turned out to be all Meg Cabot books so I moved over bays and this was it. Normally I wouldn't have picked it up since it looks like a little "throwaway" paperback (and it is), but I committed so I read it. I enjoyed it for the most part. It turned out to be a sequel, but you didn't need to read the 1st book to know what was going on. It would have provided a little character background though. Clarie is a relateable teenager and she experiences her new TV show and Broadway show with the kind of excitement that seem real enough. The romance with her co-star is cute and predictable as is a lot of the plot. But it was fun and quick and a good summer read.


  1. Ouch, that would be bad to come across a sequel for your random book. I'm glad it was still readable.

    It was fun to see someone besides me was choosing their random books out of the YA section. :D

  2. LOL I was afraid I was the only one, but it's my preferred section.

    Just as an aside, but when I was old enough to read YA, I read adult, but now that I'm an adult, I read mostly YA. Of course, YA wasn't as big back in the day.

  3. Glad it wasn't TOO bad! The book cover is very very busy ... I would have thought it was a guidebook to NYC! And the plot sounds a bit far-fetched but at least it is summer and this seems to meet the definition of "summer read."
