Product Description

Fed up with her parents and all their ridiculous rules (they keep a binder full of them), fifteen-year-old Kendra Bishop writes away to The Black Sheep, a reality TV show that offers the chance to swap families with another teen. But when the camera crew shows up at her Manhattan apartment, Kendra starts to have second thoughts. Too late. Kendra’s whisked away to Monterey, California, to live with the Mulligans. The carefree household that couldn’t be more different that her own--complete with hippy parents, their five kids, and a pet ferret. And falling for Mitch, the Mulligan's seventeen-year-old son, only complicates things further, especially since Mitch despises the TV show and everything it stands for. But given the chance, Kendra might just be able to juggle first love, her new stardom, and a pushy TV producer who will stop at nothing for higher ratings.


In this hilarious and touching YA novel, Kendra learns to live under a new roof, but finds true refuge in the unlikeliest of places—her own family.

4-0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too
The only thing Kendra Bishop wanted from her parents was for them to accept her the way she is. Kendra is just not the workaholic, marathon-obsessed, art freak like her parents. She wanted them to notice her a little. But who knew that her wish would sort of come true, when a TV crew shows up on her doorstep, congratulating her for being picked for the new reality show Black Sheep, which takes two unhappy teens and then makes them live with the others' family. So now instead of just her parents noticing her, the entire world will.

But Kendra doesn't even know how she got selected. Okay, maybe she does, but it was only a mistake. She didn't mean to write a long letter about her horrible life and the bad way her parents treat her. She didn't mean to make them sound like they were crazy and then send it in to the show. She didn't mean to make her letter sound so dramatic, but that's the only thing reality shows thrive on--DRAMA. Of course her parents wouldn't go for it, right?

Kendra should already know to expect the unexpected, because now Kendra is on her way to Monterey, California, to switch lives with Maya Mulligan, who is tired of her spirit-loving, animal-saving, hippie parents. Now Kendra's new world is just too much to handle, living with Max and Mona, her new parents, a stealing ferret, and five kids. It's not exactly what she's used to.

To make matters worse, she meets Mitch Mulligan, the oldest son in the Mulligan family. The very hot guy that Kendra now has to live with, the guy that wants nothing to do with the show, since he thinks it is ridiculous, which also drags Kendra along with it. It's bad enough that Judy Greenberg, the crazy producer that talks in third person, is always tailing Kendra, making sure she gets all the problems that Kendra has to face on camera, and sometimes even making problems when there aren't any.

But there is one good thing that comes out of this reality show. His name is Maurice and he is an otter. He's not just any ordinary otter, either--he is the only thing that actually keeps Kendra sane and maybe even changes her life.

Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout, best known for their VIVIEN LEIGH REID series, takes us into the world of celebrities, the one where it's all reality and not just some script. THE BLACK SHEEP is not only funny but also heartwarming. The characters are as charming as the ones you see on actual reality shows, and Kendra Bishop is that one person that everyone loves, roots for, and hopes to see succeed. After reading THE BLACK SHEEP, it just makes me wonder if reality TV is really that spontaneous and if the cameras are actually that annoying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super fast shipping!!!!
I ordered two books on a Monday and by Thursday they were at my door!!

1-0 out of 5 stars worth $3.50 not $17
I agree with a number of reviewers that this is a booklet (worth about $3.50and not even the cost of shipping). I feel ripped off. I paid how much for this? $26 inlcuding shipping? oh my, what a sucker! How did I not read the reviews before ordering, I do not know. And I do regret that. This is the first review I have ever written - on anything - and I am doing so now because I feel I owed it to my fellow readers out there.

Shame on you Alison Armstrong for providing half of a product at five times it's worth. You may have some interesting ideas but I certainly didn't get them out of THIS booklet. How disappointing.

3-0 out of 5 stars this is a review for the book and not the seller.my seller was great, the good was good but to brief.

3-0 out of 5 stars Insightful Information but only Part 1
I was suprised by the size or small content of the book.But with my busy schedule reading it in one sitting can be a plus!Alison's interviews got me really excited about getting the book, I even went to several book stores first so I didn't have to wait, but ended up ordering and waiting. After reading the book I thought it was a big teaser for her seminars.It did have some eye opening and useful information, but left me feeling "short sheeted".If she had covered the best way to tell men what we need and learn the Men-glish she makes reference to in the book it would have left me satified.This dissatified feeling is lasting for days after the read.
It's like watching a movie and only getting to see part 1 and you have to wait (how long?) for part 2.Don't know that I would register for seminars but would love to get my hands on Part 2.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommend this to everyone. Powerful and worthwhile quick read
Her other books (2 noted below) are more compresensive, detailed, and have helped so many people--This tiny book is a great, short, practical intro. Was hoping to find a bunch 1$ copies here at Amazon to pass along, but, they're in demand. I just completed their core seminar and it was the most powerful and most valuable weekend I've ever spent. Most of the other women there--of all ages races and backgrounds--agree. The panel of men who came for a Q&A at the end confirmed it all--and we wouldn't have heard them but for our new training on how to listen to men! I'd cut out a weekend vacation,a year's supply of whatnots, or any other seminar for this kind of much-needed practical result any day. My life and the lives of the men (at work and home) around me have already become much more appreciative, cooperative and powerful.I hope you don't miss out on what an impact this can have on you, the men and women around you, and the world--which is made up of men and women who train (spend thousand$) in an attempt to communicate powerfully, yet too often end up repeatedly scraping each other right in the--Ouch!In my opinion, if you want to bring the best out in a man (or even your male little kids), and learn how to not interrupt, so he can bring the best out in you, (or want the same for the women in your life) this is the best place to start.
