You Don’t Know Me by Sophia Bennett

You Don’t Know Me

You Don’t Know Me crop
A beautifully written story about the bonds of friendship, that also shines a spotlight on the dark world of manipulation which is sometimes the ‘reality’ of Reality Television. Where ‘real’ is edited until it is something else, something that will attract viewers, and where everyone loses something.

You Don’t Know Me exposes the ugly of social media, tabloids and unscrupulous production companies who will do anything to make money. Don’t miss this book.

Sasha, Jodie, Nell and Rose never expected to be famous. They didn’t want to be. In fact, they wanted to keep their band a secret because it’s what they do when they’re being stupid together – dressing up and singing cheesy songs.

But someone has stolen a video they made. It’s online, and it’s been entered into a talent competition. And what’s more … it’s got 24 votes. In only a few hours it’s got 24 votes.

The girls are about to be faced with a big decision that could make them seriously famous.

Just not necessarily the way they hoped …

  1. I have had my eye on this for a while now, I’ve never read anything by the author but have seen this quite a lot recently. Thanks for the great review, am hoping I can get my hands on this one soon 🙂

  2. This looks really good! I’ll go check it out on goodreads! I really want to read a modern reality show book ever since I read 1984! I think this is the one! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. There seems to be a bunch of books about reality tv being published these days. It makes sense since it seems like teens and others are really into reality tv. Great review!
