Reality TV meets a chillingly realistic version of America—and the fame game is on!
Amy had dreams of going to college, until the Collapse destroyed the economy and her future. Now she is desperate for any job that will help support her terminally ill grandmother and rebellious younger sister. When she finds herself in the running for a slot on a new reality TV show, she signs on the dotted line, despite her misgivings. And she’s right to have them. TLN’s Who Knows People, Baby—You? has an irresistible premise: correctly predict what the teenage cast will do in a crisis and win millions. But the network has pulled strings to make it work, using everything from 24/7 hidden cameras to life-threatening technology to flat-out rigging. Worse, every time the ratings slip, TLN ups the ante. Soon Amy is fighting for her life—on and off camera.
A pulse-pounding read, FLASH POINT is a story that has surprises popping up on every page.
Amy Kent’s life is terrible. Her frail old grandmother is sick and her beautiful younger sister is constantly getting in trouble. To make matters worse, she has to pay the rent in a short amount of time. Then she finds herself getting a job at TLN. It can’t be that hard, right? But then she learns the worst, Who Knows People, Baby—You? isn’t just a regular TV show, six other teens are put in difficult scenes where they must find a way to survive or save the day.
FLASH POINT isn’t a book that I found super awesome. It was alright. The characters were kind of plain, they didn’t have anything special to them. The plot was neat but it didn’t really live up to my expectations, I thought the main characters were really fighting for their lives, but they really just needed to be smart for most of the scenes.
The cover isn’t really thrilling, and doesn’t it look like she’s holding a gun in the big picture? And while I expected more because of the cover and synopsis, FLASH POINT was more of a ‘meh’ for me. I’ll let you guys decide whether or not to read FLASH POINT, because, believe it or not, it’s even difficult for me to say if I liked it or not.
