TEEN COLLINS

Fifteen-year-old Kendra Bishop quickly regrets her rash decision to write to a new reality television show when she finds herself in Monterey, California, living with a large family of activists rather than in a Manhattan apartment with her uptight, money-oriented parents.

Amazon Description:
Fed up with her parents and all their ridiculous rules (they keep a binder full of them), fifteen-year-old Kendra Bishop writes away to The Black Sheep, a reality TV show that offers the chance to swap families with another teen. But when the camera crew shows up at her Manhattan apartment, Kendra starts to have second thoughts. Too late. Kendra’s whisked away to Monterey, California, to live with the Mulligans. The carefree household that couldn’t be more different that her own—complete with hippy parents, their five kids, and a pet ferret. And falling for Mitch, the Mulligan’s seventeen-year-old son, only complicates things further, especially since Mitch despises the TV show and everything it stands for. But given the chance, Kendra might just be able to juggle first love, her new stardom, and a pushy TV producer who will stop at nothing for higher ratings.

 

In this hilarious and touching YA novel, Kendra learns to live under a new roof, but finds true refuge in the unlikeliest of places—her own family.
