WESTFIELD Reality television is heading to high school Watch the drama unfold as the three biggest nobodies in Westfield High's senior calls get a shot at becoming popular

Our hidden cameras will catch all the action as they vie for the ultimate label of acceptance and popularity--Prom Queen

It's no surprise to Shannon when she is voted least likely to be prom queen at Westfield High. That is until she's selected to co-star in a hidden-camera reality show, The Prom Queen Wannabes, and undergoes a complete makeover.

Now the social hierarchy of the entire senior class is about to be turned upside down. But when Shannon uncovers proof that the beauty business can be awfully ugly, she must find a way to show her BFF and one true crush that underneath the fabulous makeover, she really hasn't changed.

This prom night is about to shock everyone's corsages off.

Crompton’s (Blaze) fun premise is built around a reality show that aims to transform high school outcasts into pretty, poised, and potentially popular girls. If one of the three contestants can nab the ultimate prize—being named prom queen during a live telecast—she will win one million dollars. Shannon Depola agrees to participate, hoping to improve her reputation after an embarrassing incident made her the target of name-calling and harassment. After Prom Queen Camp, Shannon has a great new look, but while listening closely to her Social Advisement Coach may win her the crown, it could cost her the people she cares about. Shannon struts down a fairly predictable path that leads to some newfound insights (“I just really wanted to escape my life for a while”) and a live prom full of over-the-top mayhem. While readers won’t find many surprises, and the novel’s cultural critique is mild, its outrageous moments reveal how far the show’s producers will go to shape the reality they want. Ages 13–up. Agent: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. (Feb.)
