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 superstar and a Curly Wurly, and Jody finds herself taking home more than just a poster. It’s the accidental kidnapping of the decade. But what happens when you’ve got a rock god in your garage who doesn’t want to leave? Jody’s stuck between a rock idol and a hard place!  

From the pen of C.J. Skuse, author of last year’s super cool debut PRETTY BAD THINGS, comes a tale of rock star obsession gone nuts. Hilariously and sharply explores the fantasy and reality of celebrity worship through a teenager’s eyes. C. J. Skuse has been billed as the new Nick Hornby for teens.
