The JJJ Book Club is loving all these first reads we’re getting and we have to share the latest with you all — “Everybody Knows Your Name” by Andrea Seigel and Brent Bradshaw!
In the new book from the Laggies writers, Magnolia comes from a McMansion where her leopard print-clad mother’s primary goal is snagging a spot on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Ford comes from a trailer park in middle-of-nowhere Arkansas, where his family is best known for their record number of DUIs. The two teens have nothing in common, except a dream of escaping their backgrounds and making names for themselves. That’s where Spotlight comes in, a reality TV show singing competition that’s like a cross between The Real World and American Idol.
Now Magnolia and Ford, along with a dozen other aspiring stars, are living together in a Hollywood mansion and singing their hearts out to the American public. As the weeks go by and the number of housemates dwindles, Magnolia and Ford begin to fall in love. But how genuine can that love be when camera are watching their every move, and when their pasts are catching up to them so much faster than they can run?
“Everybody Knows Your Name” is on shelves March 10th!
