For the rest of the world, the movies are entertainment.
For Justine, they’re real life.
The premise was simple: five kids, just living their lives.
There’d be a new movie about them every five years, starting in kindergarten.
But no one could have predicted what the cameras would capture. And no one
could have predicted that Justine would be the star.
Now sixteen, Justine doesn’t feel like a star anymore. In
fact, when she hears the crew has gotten the green light to film Five at
Sixteen, all she feels is dread. The kids who shared the same table in
kindergarten have become teenagers who hardly know one another. And Justine,
who was so funny and edgy in the first two movies, feels like a disappointment.
But these teens have a bond that goes deeper than what’s on
film. They’ve all shared the painful details of their lives with countless
viewers. They all know how it feels to have fans as well as friends. So when
this latest movie gives them the chance to reunite, Justine and her costars are
going to take it. Because sometimes, the only way to see yourself is through
someone else’s eyes.

in Real Life is a piercing novel about life in an age where the lines
