Synopsis

The Black Sheep by Yvonne Collins, Sandy Rideout

Fed up with her parents and all their ridiculous rules, fifteen-year-old Kendra Bishop writes to The Black Sheep, a reality TV show that offers the chance to swap families with another teen. But when the camera crew, led by brash TV producer Judy Greenberg, shows up at her Manhattan apartment, Kendra starts to have second thoughts. Too late. Kendra is whisked away to Monterey, California, to live with the Mulligan family in a household that couldn't be more different from her own - complete with hippie parents, five kids and a pet ferret. Given the chance, Kendra might just be able to juggle first love, her new stardom, and a pushy producer who will stop at nothing for higher ratings ...

Reviews

'[A] cheery fish-out-of-water romance... Kendra's bright and breezy first-person narration moves things along at a rapid clip and the larger-than-life personalities and plot are balanced by her heartfelt reflections on family and fame'
