Jones has written a refreshing, whip-smart story about the toxicity of our ‘always on’, always online, reality TV culture. A novel with real heart.” — Stacey May Fowles

FESTIVAL BOOK

Every Little Piece of Me

Ava Hart is the most reluctant cast member of a reality TV show based on her big-city family’s (mostly staged) efforts to run a B&B in small-town Nova Scotia. Mags Kovach is the charismatic lead singer of a struggling Halifax rock band hoping to be the Next Big Thing.

As Ava and Mags’ private tragedies continue to set social media and tabloid headlines on fire, their every move subjected to an endless stream of public commentary, it will be their unexpected friendship that will save them. They will push back against the roles they’ve been forced to play, and take back control of something they thought they’d lost forever – the right to their own stories.

<em>Every Little Piece of Me</em> is a novel about family, friendship, fame, and the cost of living in the public eye – because when everyone suddenly knows your name, it’s easy to forget who you really are.
