Out of Character - Molly Zenk (2015)


Do you love reading books about reality TV shows and what goes on behind the scenes? Out of Character starts with twins Patrick and Harmony Jones talking about life after high school with his music and her acting and Patrick tells her to audition for historical show 1700s Life - then tragedy strikes. The novel jumps forward two years and introduces us to an array of actors who will be starring in this upcoming season of the living history show. Katie is a commercial queen who wants to get into TV roles and will do anything for the spotlight - even if it means going undercover as Malcolm Banks' spy on 1700s Life and stirring the drama for ratings. David is from England and the face of Purity Perfume - he's hoping that being on the faith-based show will help him find his way back to God and be a way to share his Christianity with the world. Elliot has been playing dark and intense movie characters and now thanks to an ex-girlfriend fame-seeker, all he wants is peace and quiet from her, the world and his mother who is also his manager. Harmony believes starring on the show is her way to remember Patrick but also help her move on with her life - imagine her surprise when she is given the lead role on the show. Out of Character gives readers a glimpse not only into the lives of the stars and what they wish to achieve but also an insight into what happens behind the cameras in a reality TV show. (PP)
