June 2016 Debut of the Month.

A light, flirty and oh, so much fun, debut novel by model and TV presenter Abbey Clancy. 22 year old Jess, a party entertainer from Liverpool has always dreamed of being a famous singer, so she can live like a star and look after her family. When she gets offered the chance of a lifetime, will it live up to her dreams? This is a wonderfully down to earth tale, even as it explores the heady price of fame. Jess is a loveable main character, she makes plenty of mistakes along the way, yet it is easy to emphasise with her. The quick, lively wordplay makes this a very modern romantic story and an enjoyable and entertaining read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Remember My Name by Abbey Clancy

Model and TV presenter Abbey Clancy's debut novel is a romantic comedy about a girl from Liverpool who dreams of hitting the big time...From the moment Liverpool teenager Jess stars in the school musical, she knows that she's GOT to be a star. Fast forward a few years and the closest the now 22 year old Jessica has got to stardom is as a children's entertainer - which is where she meets Jack , uncle to the spoiled 5 year old birthday princess who spots Jessica's talent and offers her a job with a record label. But that means that she'll have to leave her family and her home and move to London - where she quickly finds that the streets aren't quite paved with gold. And as she spends her days making tea for bitchy PR girls and her night in a mouldy studio flat, Jessica wonders if leaving Liverpool for London has been a terrible mistake. Attending an industry party - unfortunately only to serve canapes - Jessica's fortunes suddenly change when Vogue, the singer due to perform at the event drops out. Before she knows it, Jessica volunteers to stand in and takes centre stage. After a dazzling performance, she is surrounded by people wondering who this amazing new talent is. What's more, her star turn has been captured by the press and she has become an overnight sensation. Plunged into the crazy world of glitz and glamour, Jessica's life is transformed but as her star rises, she loses touch with her roots. Jessica's teenage dreams of stardom may have come true, but at what cost?
