I won't say a thing about Benny's because it is so good, you'll have to read to see. I expected it to be warm-hearted and cute, something I could race through. The last time he was outside threatening Chloe, telling her she wasn't going to ruin his career and all that shady nonsense, I was certain she was getting it all on camera to show him a taste of his own medicine for once. However, they're thrown for a loop when they get home from school to learn their mother has signed them up for a new series of the hit show, Baker's Dozen, without discussing it with them. I don't want to reveal too much more because then I'll spoil all the wonderful things about their relationship.
Something Real made me think about our society and about how, just by watching and observing, we might be hurting and exploiting people who don't have a choice in the matter. It got me right in the feels without it being suffocating. But I think the best part about this is the familial relationships. Heather Demetrios has now moved herself into my favourite authors category. Thank goodness Chloe has Benny, her brother, at her side for support. She had me laughing out loud constantly.
It's the little things, too, that make up the complete swoon package that is Patrick. Demetrios has written a thought-provoking piece, one ideal for the young adult genre as it forces readers to reflect on their exposure to media and the manner in which it shapes their lives. I couldn't put this book down! Not only does she seamlessly run a household with thirteen children, but she has survived the infidelity of her husband and lived to find love again, marrying Kirk. I liked the ending because it wasn't perfect. I would have loved another book introducing Lilly into the equation. Also, Benny drunk is kinda priceless.
I love books like this, when I can't put it down until the last pages. The ending doesn't bode well for him, at least, so there's that, but I wanted to experience his downfall! Turns out they were right. So, basically, their entire life is being broadcast before the world. Times are going to be tough as it is, but how does any self-respecting mother do this to her children? Please let me get upstairs. Now after four years off air, Chloe has been trying to keep Bonnie in the past.
I loved this book, and I'm kinda surprised it didn't get more hype before it's release because it's full of win. Sheldon1015: This is my cyber version of throwing pebbles at your window. Like a true coming of age story that shows just how real life gets. There's nothing wrong with the story. Her step dad might come over as a good guy but that's quickly dis proven. This author is just so good in this aspect. Chloe and Lexie's relationship grew so much throughout Something Real.
Which was ironically the lowest point for me in I'll Meet You There, while here, it was one of the strongest points. I felt so bad for Chloe. Some of his lines just made me swoon and his sweet gestures easily left a big smile on my face. There is a sovereign nation encased in this skin that MetaReel can never trademark. To allow them to be the air you breathe. How one second it makes you feel unbelievably alive and the next publicly strips you down until all that's left is one big question mark. I was very sad that this series has come to an end.
Her mum doesn't even listen to what Chloe had to say, she pretended to be the Perfect Mother on television, but off air, she was barely motherly. I'm so happy that Lexie is getting her own book. In his world, you have to sell your soul to gain your dignity. But once I got to know them, I had to admit that they created quite an entertaining and interesting bunch of characters which always equals to great read for me. Somethingis always watching and it's most definitely real.
And the banter is on point. She grabs your attention, hooks you in and does not let you go until you finish whole book. He and Chloe share this impenetrable bond that will make you wish you had a brother like him in your life. And while I still was immediately drawn to the wonderful and absolutely addictive writing style of Demetrios, I struggled to follow all the chaos surrounding the first quarter of the book. Patrick felt too perfect for me, and I really expected him to have more depth like all the other characters. This review can also be found at. It's seriously Anna and the French Kiss levels of adorbs, guys.
