When Jack Ryell is chosen as a contestant on a peculiarly hip and new American reality show, he is in for a journey he never expected, thrust into the midst of a daunting decision he never thought he would have to make. The reality show, at the heart of this dystopian creation, offers the one and only channel through which a citizen can ascend from lower class lifestyle to upper class, elite American status. Ryell's ambitions, as he accepts the show's offer to be a contestant, are to give his kind and loving family a better life. His ambitions are left in ruin when he discovers what he must do on the reality show to achieve the upper class world. A wonderfully written, scathing critique of the contemporary world and violent entertainment, interlaced with dark humor.
