Seventeen-year-old Bonnie Baker has grown up on TV--she and her twelve siblings are the stars of one-time hit reality show "Baker's Dozen." Since the show's cancellation, Bonnie has tried to live a normal life, under the radar and out of the spotlight. But it's about to fall apart . . . because "Baker's Dozen" is going back on the air. Bonnie 's mom and the show's producers won't let her quit and soon the life that she has so carefully built for herself, with real friends (and maybe even a real boyfriend), is in danger of being destroyed by the show. Bonnie needs to do something drastic if her life is ever going to be her own--even if it means being more exposed than ever before.
Heather Demetrios' "Something Real "is the winner of the Susan P. Bloom PEN New England Discovery Award.
