Über diesen Titel
Leaving behind his Bible-thumping family to take a job in Los Angeles, on-air student reporter Patrick Sheridan believes that his journalistic skills landed the job and faces a difficult decision when he realizes that his good looks were responsible.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 UpAPatrick Sheridan, a high school senior in Doggett, TX, shocks his very conservative family when he informs them that he has been asked to become an on-air student reporter for Classroom Direct, a national news program for students. Everything about this novel is unrealistic. There are so many "issues" and "episodes" that readers will stumble all over the place in an effort to find a conflict with which they can identify. They might care what happens to Patrick's steady girlfriend whom he so quickly leaves behind. They may even envy (for a short time) his glamorous opportunity for stardom and his hefty salary and chance for adventure. However, not even the most freethinking young adults will ever believe that Patrick's strict Catholic parents allow him to leave school and take up life in a hotel designated for teenage celebrities in Los Angeles. As if all this isn't far-fetched enough, Patrick, who knows that he is adopted, discovers during his stint in California that his long-lost sister is really his mother. By this time, readers will surely know that they have simply been given a soap-opera script in novel form. Then, a new episode is introduced. Patrick, on a trip to Ireland to cover the anniversary of the cease-fire, abandons the show and hides out in a small Irish village. He finally realizes that fame isn't so glamorous after all, and he sees how much Classroom Direct manipulates students' minds. Most readers probably won't stick with the book long enough to know this. Those who do will definitely feel that they, too, have been manipulated.APat Scales, Greenville Middle School, SC
