Jedward - Our Story by Jennifer O'Brien


Jedward - Our Story by Jennifer O'Brien

In 2009, two young lads from Ireland burst their way onto our screens and into the music business. When twins John and Edward Grimes appeared on X Factor, not everyone thought that they had what it took to make it in the industry. But with their sheer exuberance, determination and fearlessness, they carved themselves a place in the affections of the nation - well, most of the nation! Love them or loathe them, Jedward are here to stay. This fully authorised book takes an in-depth look at the two fascinating lives that constitute this pop phenomenon. Author Jennifer O'Brien has had exclusive and unlimited access to Jedward for over a year: she's been on the road with them, been with them backstage at X Factor shows and really got to the bottom of what makes them tick. She has also interviewed Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue to find out what they really think of the Dublin duo.
