The book of Essie
Meghan MacLean Weir
Written in English
Esther Ann Hicks--Essie--is the youngest child on Six for Hicks, a reality television phenomenon. She"s grown up in the spotlight, both idolized and despised for her family"s fire-and-brimstone brand of faith. When Essie"s mother, Celia, discovers that Essie is pregnant, she arranges an emergency meeting with the show"s producers: Do they sneak Essie out of the country for an abortion? Do they pass the child off as Celia"s? Or do they try to arrange a marriage--and a ratings-blockbuster wedding? Meanwhile, Essie is quietly pairing herself up with Roarke Richards, a senior at her school with a secret of his own to protect. As the newly formed couple attempt to sell their fabricated love story to the media--through exclusive interviews with an infamously conservative reporter named Liberty Bell--Essie finds she has questions of her own: What was the real reason for her older sister leaving home? Who can she trust with the truth about her family? And how much is she willing to sacrifice to win her own freedom?--Amazon.com

Meryl Streep, obviously, circa The Hours, as Celia. Speaking of plot sins committed at the expense of character, have I mentioned the presence of at least three caricatured villains as well. As the newly formed couple attempt to sell their fabricated love story to the media--through exclusive interviews with an infamously conservative reporter named Liberty Bell--Essie finds she has questions of her own: What was the real reason for her older sister leaving home? When her family discovers Essie is pregnant, it's decided that she should marry, but whom? Who can she trust with the truth about her family? Deeply sympathetic
Roarke has his own secrets, but he is willing to help Essie sell their love story to the world. The only problem is little of what the public sees on TV is real. Not surprisingly, her mother has a PR plan. It had been going on a while, I think, before it was revealed that there were some children there and I was struck by how strange and potentially dangerous that might be for them. Each brought a little something different to the story. If your book is averaging one new sociopath per each pages, something is probably screwed up with your algorithm or whatever.
Either way, everyone watches their show. I just googled the name Roloff. I was just getting through the days. The only question is, what price is she willing to pay, and who is she willing to hurt, in order to publish it? History is full of people who do not practice what they preach.

Some might say the book was slow at times, but I kind of liked how it differed from thrillers and murder mysteries.

I actually toyed with the idea of Naomi not knowing, but I wanted The book of Essie book explore what it means to be complicit at all different levels of involvement and power.
Send Essie away and try to pass the baby off as Celia's? There is stuff going on in his life and he does have a secret, but this is not his story. I'm eagerly awaiting Leah Remini's new season of Scientology and the Aftermath. Highly recommended! It paid for the car seat I rode home in from the hospital, the muslin blankets I was swaddled in when I slept.
Skeptical at first, Roarke agrees to marry Essie, a girl he barely knows, after finding out the deal includes enough money to get his parents out of debt and pay for college. She sets in place a plan that secures her future, helps out a friend, and reveals the father in one swift move.
And how much is she willing to sacrifice to win her own freedom? Once the truth about her family is uncovered, Essie wants Liberty — who was, in another life, an infamous, ultra conservative blogger with a dark past of her own — to help her tell the world the real story with a tell-all book.
