Tuesday Cooper describes herself as an average girl with a weird name, too-big ambitions, chubby thighs and delusions of grandeur. But surely even for girls like her dreams can come true? It certainly seems so when cool, gorgeous rock star Jackson Griffith suddenly shows an interest in her blog and her, and they do – just not in the way she expected. Written in a breathless but compulsively readable present tense, and with name checks for everyone from Jilly Cooper to Kurt Cobain, it’s a sharp and sassy summer read, with principles (and you’ve got to love a book that puts Lady Macbeth and Bruce Springsteen into the same sentence). ~ Andrea Reece
Geeky girl meets famous boy ...what could go wrong? Tuesday Cooper is happy being normal -doing her a-levels and indulging in her twin obsessions: buying weird vintage clothes in charity shops and writing her beloved music blog (which nobody ever reads). Her love for music started when she was thirteen and had a massive crush on Jackson Griffith, teen rock god and SUPER HOT LOVE OF HER LIFE. Now Tuesday's eighteen and has moved on to fancying boys in real life and Jackson went off the celebrity radar years ago. So it can't be him that's messaging her on her blog, can it? From one girl's computer to the pyramid stage at Glastonbury Festival, this is a love story for anyone who has ever wished that someone would sing a love song just for them. Dreams can come true ...
