Description

From Alison Cherry, author of Look Both Ways and Red, comes a terrific story that's "too fun to miss" (USA Today) about two sisters and one big question: how do you know who's for real?

When Miranda discovers her boyfriend, Samir, cheating on her just after her college graduation, her sister, Claire, comes up with the perfect plan. They'll outshine Miranda's ex on Around the World, a reality TV show on which fame-obsessed Samir is already scheduled to compete.

Claire expects the game to be simple: all they need to do is race around the world faster than Samir and they'll win a million bucks. But the show has a twist, and Claire is stunned to find herself in the middle of a reality-show romance that may be just for the cameras. In a world where drama is currency and manipulation is standard, this summer could end up being the highlight of her life . . . or an epic fail forever captured on film.
