Gerald, a seventeen-year-old who starred on a reality TV show when he was five, recounts the trauma of that experience and how it leaves him feeling angry and misunderstood. Reality Boy is a work of fiction that tells the awful truth about Reality TV. But, just as you begin to lose faith in the human race, the author does something magical: she shows us how it's all going to be OK. For Gerald. And for us. Highly recommended for teens and adults.
