A romantic comedy with an unforgettable cast of characters (and way more laughs than any episode of American Idol), perfect for fans of Pitch Perfect.

Meet Magnolia.

Her father's dead, her boyfriend's ditched her to commit himself more fully to surfing, and her mother's depressed because she can't get cast on The Real Housewives of Orange County. All Magnolia wants is to reinvent herself.

Meet Ford.
Half his family is in jail, the other half probably should be, he shoplifted his way into a job at a record store, and his brother pawned his 1953 Telecaster for a quick buck. All Ford wants is to reinvent himself.

Ford, meet Magnolia.
When the two teens are cast in Spotlight, a reality TV singing competition, both see it as their chance to start anew. With each episode, as they live together in a Hollywood Hills mansion and sing their hearts out, Ford and Magnolia fall in love. But how genuine can that love be when a television audience is watching their every move—and when their pasts are catching up them so much faster than they can run?

Praise for Everybody Knows Your Name:

"This book is like your favorite reality show come to life on the page. Andrea Seigel brings her patented wounded angel noir vibe and fuses it with Brent Bradshaw's blunt pathos. Together their voices pack a pretty punch. It's a sexy, funny, and poetic book about reconciling your dreams of the future with the drama of your past. I loved it."--Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith, co-screenwriter of Legally Blonde and 10 Things I Hate About You, author of Trinkets and The Geography of Girlhood

"The best voice I've read in years. Everybody Knows Your Name is a razor-sharp, hilarious, and surprisingly sexy tale of life in front of the L.A. lens. Read it immediately."--Rebecca Serle, author of Famous in Love

"Funny, entertaining, and above all, honest, Everybody Knows Your Name examines the trials and tribulations of 'reality' TV, instant fame, first love, and finding out who you are . . . especially when the cameras stop rolling."--Elizabeth Eulberg, author of The Lonely Hearts Club

"You'll fall hard for these characters.  If you're looking for the humor, wit, and heart behind 'reality' TV, it's here in this book."--Melissa Walker, author of Unbreak My Heart

"A fun and fast-paced novel for music fans or readers looking for a rock and roll reality romance.”—Dana Reinhardt, author of We Are the Goldens
