Fifteen Minutes: A Novel

We rated this book:


If you’ve ever wondered what’s behind the scenes of American Idol, this book is your chance to find out. The story is centered around country superstar hopeful Zach Dylan, and we are provided a glimpse of what life would be like as a contestant on a popular singing competition. Zach is a devout Christian who promises his college sweetheart, Reese, that he won’t lose his values if he makes it to the big leagues through the television show Fifteen Minutes. As Zach soon finds out, however, compromising his faith and his loved ones may be the only way to achieve his dream of becoming a country singer. On the judging panel is a former Fifteen Minutes star who also had to sacrifice herself for the sake of stardom. She reaches out to Zach, recognizing the position he is in, but will it be too late to redeem him?

Though at times the novel felt too simple or far-fetched, I enjoyed it overall. It’s an easy and quick read that promotes positive morals, which I appreciate because it can be a hard-pressed attribute to find in books these days. Fifteen Minutes is a perfect read for anyone who just wants a light, feel-good story.
