Pop! Paperback



Billy Elliot meets the X-Factor meets Shameless. An emotional rollercoaster of a novel for readers aged 11 to 111.

I reckon we need a plan that's so massive it'll change our lives forever ...The first round of auditions was a bit mad.

All these wannabe popstars sitting around trying to look wacky/soulful/tragic (delete as appropriate) to catch the attention of the TV cameras.

At least we had a cracking back story. The story of me, Agnes, Jimmy and baby Alfie too; the tears, the tragedy, the broken homes and feuding families, the star-crossed lovers. And only some of it was made up. If I say so myself, it was genius: a sure-fire golden ticket to stratospheric stardom. Or at least that was the plan ...The second book from Catherine Bruton, author of We Can Be Heroes, about reaching for the stars and becoming famous from the humblest of beginnings.

Sad, tender, exciting and full of the real-life grit of a broken home.
