CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although everyone does not like reality shows and care even less for the participants, I found America’s Next Reality Star an entertaining read. Seeing behind the scene was fascinating and I enjoyed the many personalities at play. As on the real television shows, some of the participates are likeable and others you love to hate. Heffernan filled this story with emotion and action; America’s Next Reality Star’s a past paced read with well-developed characters.
