Publisher Description

Reality TV has a dark future in this thought-provoking thriller

To the people suffering on the war-torn mainland, Bliss Island seems like an idyllic place. And it is: except for the fact that the island is a set, and the islanders’ lives are a performance. They’re the stars of a hit TV show, Blissful Days—Characters are adored by mainland viewers, yet in constant danger of being cut if their ratings dip too low. And no one really knows what happens to cut Characters.

Nettie Starling knows she’s been given the chance of a lifetime when a producer offers suggestions to help her improve her mediocre ratings—especially when those suggestions involve making a move on the boy she’s been in love with for years. But she'll soon have to decide how far she's willing to go to keep the cameras fixed on her. . . especially when she learns what could happen to her if she doesn't.

Dystopian.reality shows

Hm....so I liked the book but I didn't love it. It's dystopian. Time is kinda up in the air, I didn't get a big futuristic vibe either. The story lacked world build I guess. I liked the idea of it but I never truely felt scared of worried for any of the characters, I never really felt attached to any of them, but at the same time I wanted to finish the book, I wanted to know how it ended.
