High-school senior Patrick Sheridan has the job of his dreams. He’s left his small Texas town for Los Angeles, where he’s a television reporter on Classroom Direct. As his face is beamed into schools across the country, Patrick becomes a celebrity. The pay is great, his wardrobe is lavish, and soon Patrick’s mailbox overflows with fan mail. But the others on the show are jaded. His girlfriend and best buddy are a thousand miles away. As Patrick grows less sure of who he is, or wants to be, an assignment in Ireland offers him a chance to find out.
Rob Thomas, award-winning author of Rats Saw God, worked for a news program much like Classroom Direct. He taught high-school journalism for five years and is now a writer for commercial television. In Satellite Down, this talented writer gives young adults an unflinching look at growing up in the spotlight.
Robert James “Rob” Thomas is an American author, producer, and screenwriter, best known as the author of the 1996 novel Rats Saw God, creator of the critically acclaimed television series Veronica Mars, and co-creator of 90210, Party Down, and iZombie.
