Get Reading: Loathing Lola AND Creative Writing Workshop

Loathing Lola by William Kostakis

When a reality show offers to broadcast the life of 15-year-old Courtney Marlow, she decides to go through with it, despite the fact she doesn't watch much reality TV. Courtney is determined to be a positive role model, someone on television without a boob job or an eating disorder. But as events in her life are deviously manipulated to create drama, Courtney begins to realise that 'ordinary' doesn't translate into 'entertaining' ... A funny, edgy novel of our times.
