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?

Fifteen Minutes really made me evaluate my priorities in life and wether I was neglecting those who matter most to me. Though my dream is not to become a famous singer, as I make choices as to what career path I'm about to choose and what courses to take, Karen Kingsbury has helped me to listen to advice given by family and friends. Sometimes it is so easy to go off in pursuit of our dreams just as Zach did, but we really should take advice from those who love us the most. Fifteen Minutes is a touching story, and though it did not have the fairy-tale ending I wanted, it realistically shows how our decisions effect our lives and the lives of those around us. I would recommend this book for anyone, especially those considering big decisions in their life right now.
