in 7th Grade and up
This story is set in a school for artistically talented students, and a reality show threatens the culture of the school. The conflict is about whether students will (or should) take advantages of the show’s rewards, or fight against everything it represents.
This author has a distinctive voice, and although she’s writing about teens in a school setting (like thousands of other stories), she manages to create characters who are authentic and different from the usual fare.
