    I listened to this on audio CD, which provided the wonderful Welsh and British accents that really enriched the story.The first half of the book describes the extreme crushes on then teen idol David Cassidy held by a 1970s Welsh teenage girl, Petra, and her friends By turns humorous and bittersweet, it perfectly chronicles the social angst of trying to be part of the crowd as a teenager The characterization of the manipulati

    I really liked this mainly because I could relate to Petra and Sharon Like them, I had unhealthy infatuations with celebrities who have no idea I exist In fact, I still have these obsessions I m still waiting for Tim Lincecum to marry me As for the storyline, I liked how it included the perspectives of both Petra and Bill You got to see two different sides to the David Cassidy mania Overall, I enjoyed this novel and its insights in

    Well, this book was a scream let me tell you I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish and it made me laugh out loudthan once It hit on all those teenage angst moments boys and puberty, mean girls at school and a demanding mother self imposed expectations and limitations and how we see ourselves with all those insecurities clouding the mirror, all done to the music of the times to set the moods and Allison Pearson made it all quite funny Painfully funny at times
