Poppy dreams of a career in television and is willing to start at the bottom. Even though her mum is nagging her to get a serious job, like in banking, the history graduate finally scores her first break when she becomes a runner at RealiTV, the home of reality TV shows such as Last Clan Standing and Strictly Come Prancing. But to win a permanent position, she is up against the infuriatingly smug and ever-so-competent Rhidian. They have to do everything from getting coffees and standing in as quiz contestants to keeping the talent sober. Poppy is a fantastic, spirited character, who gets herself in all sorts of hilarious messes. Written by someone who has spent years working in television herself, the book offers a tantalising insider’s view into the world of TV and the fictional shows are clever twists on real reality programs. I highly recommend that you switch off the box tonight and grab this book instead. There’s even the hint of a sequel – here’s hoping!
