My Secret Rockstar Boyfriend by Eleanor Wood

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 . . .

My thoughts

I really enjoyed this book. It was really fun with a main character who I could really root for.

Tuesday Cooper is the girl I wanted to be when I was 13 but was too frightened to be. She's quirky and does her own thing regardless of what anything else thinks. She's clever and geeky focused entirely on her passion which is music which she blogs about regularly.

I love that this story focuses on a blogger and the insane hobby that it has the potential to be. Whilst blogging about one of her favourite bands Tuesday starts to get messages from someone claiming to be her favourite rockstar Jackson Griffith and it isn't until it goes on for a while that she gets confirmation that her new email buddy is the real deal.

Over the course of the book Tuesday connects with Jackson and they start to become close despite the issues they face to be friends discreetly when Jackson is constantly in the limelight. It comes to a head when Tuesday is invited by Jackson to Glastonbury and over the course of the weekend it becomes clear how much of a cost fame really has had on Jackson.

The story itself is laugh out loud funny in many places but also has real heart. I really enjoyed seeing the story unfold as Tuesday finds herself drawn into Jackson's world without really knowing what she is letting herself in for.

A fabulous book which you will love if you liked Non Pratt's Remix and CJ Skuse's Rockaholic


This looks like so my kind of story - I might have to bump it up my pile :)
