Do you think:a) Who on earth is that?
b) awwww ..... I remember him ..... I had that poster .....
Well if you answered 'a' you are obviously much much younger than me and should look away now.
If you answered 'b' then you and I have much in common! When I was growing up I loved David Cassidy. Bought Jackie magazine because they always had articles on him and posters to stick on your wall. DC was a big part of my teenage years.
I've just finished reading this:
When I read the storyline I knew I had to buy it even though it is pure 'chick lit'. It's the kind of book you can read in a few sittings but oh how I associated with the characters. Without giving too much away it starts with a woman in her 40s clearing her mothers house and finding a letter hidden at the back of the wardrobe. She recognises the self addressed envelope as one she had completed as part of a magazine competition when she was a teenager.
It then goes back in time to her being that teenager and obsessed with David Cassidy. Day to day life of a girl growing up in the 70s. Entering a competition to win the opportunity to meet him. Going to his final UK concert in White City where a fan died and he then stopped touring.
So it turns out that she won the competition but her mother hid the letter and she never knew. In a moment of madness she contacts the magazine to claim her prize after all these years.
It was a good lighthearted read and I defy anyone out there who grew up in 'love' with DC not to smile as she describes the kind of crazy things a young teenage girl will do just to try and be the perfect girl that her hero will fall in love with!
