First Impression: This keeps staring at me from the shelf. I better buy it and take it home.
Synopsis: 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.
200words (or less) review: This is so much better than expected. When I finally got round to buying Rockoholic (I waited too long, don’t make that mistake) I thought it would be a cute and fun way to spend a couple of hours. Wrong. I couldn’t put it down.
This book is awesome. It’s hilarious, my sides were hurting during some parts I was laughing so much. As ridiculous as this idea sounds while you’re reading Rockoholic you’re absolutely convinced by all of it. When I first saw the length of the book I didn’t think C J Skuse would be able to hold my attention without dragging the story. Wrong again.
Jody is the girl who would drive me nuts but the more I got to know her the more I adored her. I thought all the other main characters were great as well, particularly Mac and Jody’s grandfather. It might have been her grandfather’s funeral at the beginning of the book but he was so important to Jody that he became important to me.
On the surface Rockoholic is a highly entertaining story about a girl meeting her idol. Yet it is so much more special than that – read it.
