She's got it bad, and he ain't good -- he's in her garage?

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, loses her precious moon rock, and bodysurfs backstage, she ends up with 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. 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?!

A Patchwork of Books

I love books that give insights into life -- those are the ones I keep throughout many book purges.

Skuse, author of 2010's super cool debut Pretty Bad Things, comes a tale of rock star obsession gone nuts.

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.
