Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury shows why she is America’s favorite inspirational novelist with this 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 the novelist dubbed the "Queen of Christian Fiction" by Time magazine, Fifteen Minutes explores the cost of fame and celebrity set against the backdrop of America’s favorite singing competition.

This should be in any collection

If you could sum up Fifteen Minutes in three words, what would they be?

Surprising,heart-breaking and well-written


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would let each chapter be told by a different character. This should be a series. The last filthy minutes tried to wrap it up too fast. This book should be required reading in this day and age.


Which scene was your favorite?

The heartbreaking song to the girl he loves


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes: When he saw what he lost


Any additional comments?

Do not let my rating hold you back. It is painfully true. Sadly too short.
