Weekly Reads: Waste of Space

Waste of Space is a book that popped up on my radar as a really fun story with an obnoxious reality tv show storyline. I think I stopped reading there, and put it on hold at my library. It was told in a really cool format, and I really loved it to start. It got a bit slow in the middle of the story, but then had a pretty intense finale. A good read if you're looking for a fun teen read.

My rating: 3.5 stars

Summary from Goodreads:

Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that’s the premise for the ill-conceived reality show Waste of Space. The kids who are cast know everything about drama—and nothing about the fact that the production is fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state-of-the-art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show. And it’s a hit! Millions of viewers are transfixed. But then, suddenly, all communication is severed. Trapped and paranoid, the kids must figure out what to do when this reality show loses its grip on reality.
