Heard about a Book...

I am always on the lookout for a good romance novel for Cheryl—I Think I Love You by Allison Pearson is getting good reviews. From The New York Times review: "Just as Allison Pearson’s 2002 best seller, I Don’t Know How She Does It, proved she had perfect pitch for channeling a stressed-out working mom in hedge-fund-crazy London, so her new novel, I Think I Love You, shows she has the same gift for channeling an insecure 13-year-old in 1974 with a mad crush on the pop star David Cassidy. You know, David Cassidy of “The Partridge Family”—he with the Bambi eyes and feathered mop top, who was the love object of millions of young girls in that era of bell-bottom pants, platform shoes and Mary Quant eye shadow. "


Two friends Petra and Sharon live for David Cassidy. His fan magazine is the girls' Bible and they memorise every word that he sings and writes, in the hope of becoming the future Mrs. Cassidy. But unbeknownst to Petra, and to millions of other hopefuls, David's letters may not be all his own work.
