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?!


This book is actually already out in the UK, I believe, but when I saw this cover on the Scholastic catalog I flipped. I hadn’t heard of it before, but it definitely has my attention now! I love that cover, and it sounds like it’s going to be fun. :)

    Ooooooh, I haven’t heard of this one yet.   I do love books originally released in the UK.  Those englishmen/women write some epic contemp novels!  Great pick!

    Aww, this one sounds really cute. Definitely a fun little read and different from what I normally read. I might have to look into it.

    what is a curly wurly candy bar? don’t answer that.. *runs to google*

    (30 seconds later) Alright, I’m good now..

    this book does look super cute, and those candy bars look hella good. I sort of almost kidnapped my husband before we got together. I lured him in with Pot.. We worked together and at the time,  I had no car or liscense.. Pick up line went as follows..

    “hey, would you mind driving me home tonight…. I have weed. ” I had it all planned out.. It was love at first joint.

    It worked.. over ten years later, we are still happily married with a little girl.. no more pot though.. we will always have our memories. lol.
