About this book
The second book from the author of acclaimed debut, "We Can Be Heroes", and it's like "Billy Elliot" meets the X-Factor meets "Shameless". Beginning with the opening auditions for wannabe popstars, the family group here reckon they have a cracking back story that will attract the TV cameras - and only some of it is made up. It's a cracking, roller-coaster plot, full of warmth, humour and unforgettable characters. Ages: 11+
The first round of auditions was a bit mad. All these wannabe popstars sitting around trying to look wacky/soulful/tragic 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.
