As Seen on T.V. by Sarah Mlynowski

Back Cover: When Sunny Langstein decides to pick up her Florida life and move in with her boyfriend in Manhattan, her big sister isn't thrilled. What modern-day twenty-four-year-old leaves her promising career, fabulous friends and perfect underground packing spot with accompanying convertible for... a guy? Only, Sunny has an additional incentive: the chance to star on Party Girls, the latest reality-television show. True, she might become a national laughingstock and it pays nothing, BUT it's a job- a job in Manhattan. She'll get to be with her boyfriend, Steve. Okay, so she can't tell anyone she isn't single but with freebie designer clothes, alpha-beta peels and coconut-cream pedicures to make her transformation into a made-for-TV single girl complete... she can't lose! Yet when the show's premiere plunges Sunny into a media frenzy of talk shows, tampon endorsements, TV heartthrobs and S&M toys, how long will it take for Sunny Lang the Uber Fashionista Single Superstar, begins? I thought this was pretty good, it did def remind me of L.A. Candy, but then it kinda veered off a little bit where it turned kinda different. Sunny is hilarious, and you could see how when she bgan she wasn't caring about fashion or designer clothes too much and just wanted to get a job and be with her boyfriend, but she slowly starts to become obssessed with the show and what people think of her on the show that it takes first place in her life, moving Steve out the way! It was especially sad when he proposed to her and she said no and started saying how people could see, sadness! I so wanted them to make up, and they did yay, but no marrying yet! Michelle seemed nice but was really takiTng advantage of things. Erin and Brittany, I dunno just seem like typical wannabes or something. That's how being a star can make you, so it is really great to see when stars aren't like that. But this one took a while I will hopefully start with the one a day again but I started school and had to do alot of reading for class so ya know, but I can do it!
