Summary of the Book:
Fame can be deadly.
Out of the wreckage of environmental collapse, the country of Delicatum emerged. Its most popular celebrities are the Famoux, uniquely beautiful stars of a reality TV show called the Fishbowl. In a world still recovering from catastrophe, they provide a 24/7 distraction.
Sixteen-year-old Emilee Laurence is obsessed with the Famoux—they provide a refuge from her troubled home life and the bullies at school. When she receives an unimaginable offer to become a member herself, she takes it. Leaving behind everything she’s ever known, Emilee enters a world of high glamour and even higher stakes.
Because behind their perfect image lies an ugly truth—an anonymous stalker has been dictating the Famoux’s every move, and being popular really is a matter of life or death.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book sounded a little strange when I decided to read it for the blog. It centered around Emilee who lives in a post-apocalyptic world. There is some family drama, a little romance, and a strangeness that kept me wondering. There is a group called the Famoux that are on a reality show that gives off teen soap opera vibes called the Fishbowl. Emilee has a fight with her sister and meets someone connected to the show. That is how she becomes the newest cast member. This is where she discovers the show is not all it seems to be and there is more going on behind the scenes. The world building for the story was wonderful. The editing and writing was amazing, but some of the characters were a little forgettable. The cliffhanger makes me wonder what is coming next.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
