Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Pages: 368
Publisher: Chicken House
Released: 1st of March 2011

Jody loves Jackson Gatlin. At his only UK rock concert, she’s right at the front. But when she's caught in the crush and carried back stage she has more than concussion to contend with. Throw in a menacing manager, a super-wired super-star, and a curly-wurly, and she finds herself taking home more than just a poster. It’s the accidental kidnapping of the decade. But what happens if you’ve a rock-god in your garage who doesn’t want to leave? Jody’s stuck between a rock-idol and a hard place! 

What I Have to Say

A really good, lighthearted, non-serious read. If you're looking for something quite lighthearted to read then this is the perfect book for you! 

While, for me, Jodie started out as incredibly dislikeable, she grew on me. The way she speaks is really realistic too. And all the pop culture references were great, because real people will just talk about things like that. I especially liked the way she described one of the places as looking like Knocturn Alley, because Harry Potter is a very big part of most of our generations' childhood, so it's really realistic to have someone reference it so casually. 

I loved Cree so much! She was absolutely adorable! I really think she added a lot to the book, because it showed a side of Jodie that wasn't just a rock-star obsessed, immature girl. 

In the end, this is a story about a girl growing up. It's a really interesting read and very funny.
