AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Fifteen-year-old Courtney Marlow didn't exactly think it through. She thought the offer to have her life broadcast on national television was the perfect solution to her family's financial troubles.

'She was wrong.

'Mackenzie Dahl, the show's producer, promised to show Australia a real teenager. Courtney was going to be a positive role model, someone on television without a boob job and an eating disorder.

'But as events in her life are deviously manipulated to create drama, Courtney begins to realise that "ordinary" does not translate to "entertaining".

'Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame via a little bit of Courtney - especially her conniving friend Katie, and her stepmother, Lola. But Courtney is not the pliant teenager everyone seems to think she is...' (Publisher's blurb)
