18769257 For Real

Author: Alison Cherry
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: December 1, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

No parents. No limits. No clue what they're in for.

Shy, cautious Claire has always been in her confident older sister's shadow. While Miranda's life is jam-packed with exciting people and whirlwind adventures, Claire gets her thrills vicariously by watching people live large on reality TV.

When Miranda discovers her boyfriend, Samir, cheating on her just before her college graduation, it's Claire who comes up with the perfect plan. They'll outshine Miranda's fame-obsessed ex while having an amazing summer by competing on Around the World, a race around the globe for a million bucks. Revenge + sisterly bonding = awesome.

But the show has a twist, and Claire is stunned to find herself in the middle of a reality-show romance that may or may not be just for the cameras. This summer could end up being the highlight of her life... or an epic fail forever captured on film. In a world where drama is currency and manipulation is standard, how can you tell what's for real?
Why I'm Excited:

Doesn't this sound cute. I love books that focus on sisters. I don't personally watch The Amazing Race (is that what that reality show is called?), but it does make a great premise for a book. For Real sounds so fun. I'm definitely keeping my eyes open for this one.

  1. Oh, this sounds like a great summer contemporary! I love reality show drama stuff in books, and also have an obsession with travelling, so this is one for me.

  2. This cover is super cute. I love sister stories, too. :) I don't watch reality shows...I wonder if I will enjoy reading them!

  3. This one sounds so cute and it has been so long since I have read a sister story. It almost sounds like a beach read…wish it would have come out this summer…December is a long wait! Great pick!

  4. It sounds like they are joining The Amazing Race, which I love. Great pick!!

    Here is my WoW:

  5. I don't even know what The Amazing Race is, I mean I've heard of it, but that's about it. I didn't really like Red, but since this seems completely different to it, I won't judge it...yet. Sounds like a fun one though.

  6. This cover is so fun! It definitely sounds like the The Amazing Race (I used to watch it, but I have a hard time enjoying all the drama that comes with reality shows). Thanks for sharing! *adds to TBR list*

  9. This does sound cute! I like that it's sisters rather than just best friends. And yup, it sounds like Amazing Race. Great pick, thanks for highlighting this!

    Here's my WoW (:

  10. I didn't enjoy this author's first book, RED, but I'm excited about this one! I love sibling books and this one is sorta roadtrip-ish too, which is awesome! Great pick!
