Ninety-nine Books on the Wall by Golden November opens with a 'cool' set of song lyrics. Then we learn Channel 2000 is casting for a reality show involving creative artists. Phoebe signs up a group of authors and musicians including Jaxon, Hayley, May, and Will. She also contracts individuals to join the audience as professional fans. The artists move into Big Brother-style accommodation and perform in a display of talent. Unfortunately, the show did not get the ratings that the producers expected. The host is fired and a new host is hired. Candy ensures the contestants are dropped into exciting situations unrelated to their talents, and the ratings soar. What will happen when Channel 1970 launches a reality show that attempts to sabotage Channel 2000?
Ninety-nine Books on the Wall by Golden November was a hilarious spoof of television scripting. I liked that the text was clear and readable with every page featuring an illustration. The dialogue and the repartee were quite scintillating. The characters' conversations presented the storyline, while the reader’s mind was required to complete the action. I am a fan of reality television, so the subject matter intrigued me by exploring the logistics and contradictions of the medium. I enjoyed the humorous approach, which I felt was well employed. I also enjoyed the multiple levels of narrative, with some scenes depicting the progress of the show, and other segments representing reactions and maneuvering from behind the scenes. This book would make a fine addition to the young adult section of any library.
