This is a Christian fiction book. It is about a brother and sister that became children stars on a sitcom tv show. The show ends, however, years later the networks decide to bring the show back when they are adults. The show previously had stars that stood by their faith and made it a family show. When they are adults the network turns it into a foul mouth, no morals show. This upsets Mike and the cast from the past that are in this sequel, are not sure how to handle what has happened. Can Mike and the cast stand their ground and make their faith known? Will they be able to save what the real show had, family values?
I would recommend this book to those that like sitcom's and reality shows. The book is a bit slow at times, I found myself wishing they would just get to the point, it did alot of storyline in the past. I am a fan of old sitcoms with family morals and values, so I kept reading to find out how Mike and his family was going to handle it.
***My opinion only, the title of the book and cover reminded me of an R rated movie. I was given this book to read for review. Because of the title and cover I wouldn't have read it or picked it up, if you can get past the title and cover, it is a good book.

More from John
I wrote the book as a Christian response to a well-known actor starring in a popular television show reboot. I thought the topic would be an interesting fictional exploration what actors and fans should consider when a TV show seems to compromise an actor’s values.
I chose the Dallas metroplex as the main setting because I have visited the area several times. As a child in the early 1980s, I remember watching two Dallas TV stations on cable TV.
To celebrate his tour, John is giving away the grand prize package of a $50 Amazon Gift Card and a copy of the book!!
