After Charly’s Epic Fiascos tossing out the lemons rather than making lemonade in Nuevo York, the Illinois expatriate continues her odyssey to make the big time. She gets a slot as the faithful sidekick to former child star Annison’s hostess role on The Extreme Dream Team traveling reality show. Besides the divas and the crew, Charly brings Marlow 2 to act as “Robin” the sidekick to Annison’s teacup sized poodle “Batman” Doll.

On the cross country trek to Southern California, Charly meets people in need but they teach her valuable lessons on what matters in life as she seems to step into one fiasco after another. In Los Angeles, Charly knows real reality is a lot tougher to cope with than reality TV as toilets don’t wait for the next show.

Reality Check is a zany teen road show starring a wonderful heroine whose amusing wry philosophical asides satirize homilies while she seems to step into one fiasco after another. Breezy fun, readers will enjoy Charly’s latest fiascos across the country and in "It never rains in California … man it pours" (Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood); as she makes a Reality Check on what matters on and off the air.
