Product Description

Zack Dylan has a dream to sing on the biggest stages, for the biggest crowds, and he vows to do..almost..whatever it takes to make it come true. But Zack also made a promise to his college sweetheart when he left Kentucky to compete on the popular TV show Fifteen Minutes: If he made it, nothing would change him or his faith in God.

Overnight, Zack becomes the nation's most popular contestant. As his star rises, Zack is often asked to compromise and quiet his beliefs. Just as he's on the verge of winning it all, his choices lead him to the brink of personal disaster. Meanwhile, a former Fifteen Minutes winner is searching for meaning amidst her own private losses. Can she warn Zack about the real price of fame? Or will Zack lose everything he loves for his fifteen minutes of glory?

Publisher's Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury, known for her “signature mix of melodrama, formula, and genuine emotional punch” (Publishers Weekly), a dramatic story about character, compromise, and the cost of having it all.

Zack Dylan has a dream. He wants to sing on the biggest stages, for the biggest crowds, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make it come true. But Zack also made a promise to his college sweetheart when he left Kentucky to compete on the popular TV show Fifteen Minutes: If he made it, nothing would change him or his faith in God.

Overnight, Zack becomes the nation’s most popular contestant, a country singer comparable to a young Tim McGraw. As his star rises, Zack is often asked to compromise and quiet his beliefs. Just as he’s on the verge of winning it all, his choices lead him to the brink of personal disaster. Meanwhile, a former Fifteen Minutes winner is searching for meaning amidst her own private losses. Can she warn Zack about the real price of fame? Or will Zack lose everything he loves for his fifteen minutes of glory?

From America’s favorite inspirational novelist, Fifteen Minutes explores the cost of fame and celebrity set against the backdrop of America’s favorite singing competition.

Author Bio

Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist, is America’s favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists and many of her novels are under development with Hallmark Films and as major motion pictures. She lives in Tennessee with her husband, Don, and their five sons, three of whom are adopted from Haiti. Their actress daughter, Kelsey, lives nearby and is married to Christian recording artist Kyle Kupecky. The couple recently welcomed their first child, Hudson.

Editorial Reviews

“Inspirational fiction superstar Kingsbury considers the cost of fame [in] a tale that is sure to cause tears”
"Bestselling author Kingsbury (The Chance, 2013) drives straight to the heart of her characters as always in this
excellent tale of desire and faith, digging beneath the surface of her plot to fuel an emotionally driven story set within the exciting world of reality TV."
"Kingsbury has produced a new riveting page-turner of relatable characters and situations and the best ways to hang on to our faith in a world that no longer sees its value."
"Christian novelist Kingsbury offers a faith-based look at an American Idol–style show and the inherent spiritual risks placed upon the contestants."

    If you are a fan of the Voice, X-factor, American Idol or any other show like it then you will like this book. I have to admit though, that's not why I picked it up. I mainly bought it because it was a Karen Kingsbury book and I enjoy reading her work. It's a thought provoking book that looks at what one will go through to grab his or her fifteen minutes of fame. Zack Dylan had honorable reasons for going to try out for the show fifteen minutes, he wanted to save his family's horse farm and bring glory to God. Despite his grandfather's warnings he heads off to compete on the show. There were several places in the book I called Zack an idiot,out loud (much to my husband's amusement). There were times I thought he was the biggest dum dum I had ever seen. There were times when I admired his audacity to share his faith with people he barely knew. I envied how easily he prayed in crowds and with others watching. Then there were times I wanted to wring his neck! I won't ruin it by telling you all the details but I will say this, I saw a lot of myself in Zack and his struggles. He wasn't just a character, he was someone I knew and I was totally invested in his story and the outcome. Like all of Karen's books by the end I felt like I had made several new friends and my life was richer by reading Fifteen Minutes.

    I am a big fan of Karen Kingsbury. With books like Halfway To Forever, Unlocked and the Baxter Series it's hard not to be.

    But her last 8 or 9 books have just steadily gone downhill. They have all centered around the same thing: fame.

    A few books about that are okay, but this many? With the Above the Line series, the Bailey series, the Firstborn series, The Chance ( and on and on) about the same subject is just getting old.

    Fifteen Minutes is just okay. It's better than the last couple of books put out, but there doesn't seem to be a real moral to the story other than beware of fame. I know it shows how fame pressured Zachary to compromise his beliefs, but somehow it just didn't come across as a strong Christian book.

    If you're looking for a good Karen read, I would recommend to put this one down and go find some of her earlier books.

    This book will appeal to young people. Not the Kingsbury quality. It certainly is timely because of all the reality shows today. But a disappointing read.

    Another great book by famous author Karen Kingsbury! This story moves along quickly and definitely held my attention throughout. I liked that it was modern and the characters had depth. I have not always liked her books. In fact I have found some of them too dramatic and not very real to life. This book, however, was very good. I thought she showed the positive and negative of being famous and how it changes you and everyone around you. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I would recommend the story to anyone looking for a quick and entertaining read!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
