Summary:She’s got it bad, and he ain’t good — he’s in her garage?”I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me…”

Gonna have to face it: Jody’s addicted to Jackson Gatlin, frontman of The Regulators, and after her best bud Mac scores tickets, she’s front and center at his sold-out concert. But when she gets mashed in the moshpit and bodysurfs backstage, she’s got more than a mild concussion to deal with. By the next morning, the strung-out rock star is coming down in her garage. Jody — oops — kind of kidnapped him. By accident. With a Curly Wurly candy bar. And now he doesn’t want to leave.

It’s a rock-star abduction worthy of an MTV reality series…but who got punk’d?!


Review: This book is kind of hard to review because my feelings for it are kind of inconsistent. I started reading this book about a month ago, and the first chapter was entertaining enough. The second chapter was just okay, and by the third chapter rolled around, I was really bored. So I decided to set it aside for a bit.

Well, I picked it up again early this morning, and it got better. By the end of chapter five, I was smiling and laughing out loud. Jodie’s antics were so crazy, and Mac’s dramatic outbursts were hilarious.

But then it got weird, and then irritating, and then serious, and then back to irritating. And the rest of it was entertaining enough, but I was just ready for Jodie to realize what’s really important and for the end to come together as I had predicted all along.

The characters in this book were okay – not boring characters, but not memorable either. With the exception of Mac, only because he had some great lines. “I can almost hear the soap dropping in the shower.” But I think Skuse tried a little too hard to throw readers off course, but because it was so blatantly obvious, I think most readers will be able to see right through it.

So yes, this book was really cliche and totally predictable, but it was an entertaining, cute read. I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more if it was a little shorter, but it wasn’t a bad read either.
