Synopsis

Welcome to Paradise: My Journey by Cody Simpson

He's young, he's hot and he's set to be the biggest thing in pop - 16-year-old Cody Simpson is sending shockwaves around the world. Now, in his first official book, Cody reveals all about his meteoric rise to fame. From the beaches of Australia to touring the world with Justin Bieber, this is a must-have for any true fan. From a young age, it appeared that Cody Simpson's future was mapped out for him. A hugely talented swimmer, he was destined to compete at the highest level, representing his native Australia. But when he picked up a guitar at the tender age of 7, his life changed forever. It was clear to everyone who heard him sing and play that he had a gift, and when videos of his performances were uploaded to YouTube, the world started watching. Suddenly Cody's life was a whirlwind of meetings with record labels and managers. He had to make a life-changing choice. Would he follow the sporty path that had been laid for him? Or would he take a terrifying risk? Cody followed his heart. And with the support of his family, who gave up everything to move to LA, the gamble paid off. Since then, Cody's gone on to work with some of the biggest names in music - including Justin Bieber and Flo Rida - played sold-out concerts around the world, released three albums, had multiple hit singles, and appeared on dozens of major televisions shows. It's been a whirlwind adventure for this 16-year-old - and he's only just getting started. Jam packed with never-before-seen photos and exclusive gossip about life on and off stage, this book charts Cody's journey from ordinary kid to superstar. It's a story of sacrifice, risk-taking, and believing in yourself even when the odds are stacked against you.
