What will reality TV do next? Kaylie Adams is about to find out, as she joins FBC’s new hit reality TV show: Canceled. A sort of “Abortion Idol,” the American viewing audience votes weekly: keep the baby, or terminate. When FBC studio executive Jake Granville learns he’s the father, TV’s hottest new show suddenly gets very personal. But a contract is a contract.
In a nation obsessed with turning the deeply private into a public freak show, opportunistic network executives push Kaylie and Jake – and America’s nerve – to the limit.
Readers say Canceled: The Story of America’s Least Wanted pillories reality TV the way Thank You for Smoking parodies the tobacco debate and The Truman Show takes people-watching to a whole new level. You may hate it, you may love it, but you will definitely remember it.
America may choose the fate of Kaylie’s unborn baby, but only you can decide if you have the audacity to read this groundbreaking novel.

"Bitingly clever ... darkly brilliant. The plot twists and turns serve up a juicy dish on the nefarious workings of a brutally jaded Hollywood ... and the ending has a pleasantly unexpected twist..." -- Publisher's Weekly
