What a page-turner!
Really made me look at shows like American Idol with a new set of eyes.
Loved the ending! Hope the author writes a sequel to it so we can find out what happens to Zack & Reese.

This book is a fast read, it's so good!
You are going to readily like the main character. Very similar to American Idol, but behind the scenes so to speak.

Ending is good as well!
