Girl Meets Boy Band
Girl Meets Boy Band
by Emma Grey
Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, the world's biggest boy band. Is she the only girl in Sydney who can't be bothered with perfect-looking Angus Marsden?
Give her 5 Seconds of Summer. Now.
Or maybe the seriously-hot med student who rescued her on a train - and who could be Douglas Booth's twin! Perfect formal partner, much?
But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsden himself, things start to get complicated. Very. Throw in a deranged female popstar, final exams, a part in the musical and a mum who just doesn't get it - and where is her best friend?
When did life get so crazy? Kat's just an ordinary schoolgirl.
[You can read the first three chapters here.]

Delightful tale of a young girl going through her first crush, only it’s with the star of the biggest ‘Boy Band’ of the era. Seventeen year-old Kat has to take her twelve year-old twin sisters to the Unrequited concert playing in Sydney, Australia because their mother’s plane is held up and there’s no way the twins are going to miss the concert.
Kat is not a fan, but she loves her sisters, so they take the train to the concert, and while on their way, Kat sees a boy she nick-names ‘McDreamy’ in her head. Kat can’t believe her bad luck. Here she is meeting the man of her dreams while on a bus with dozens of young fans, obviously headed to the Unrequited concert.
When the bus breaks down, Kat is thrown into McDreamy’s arms, and then drops her ticket to the show in front of him. He smiles and hands her back her ticket and then graciously offers to buy them a cab ride to the concert so that they don’t miss it. Kat is horrified when McDreamy waves her and her sisters off without asking for her phone number. Kat’s sure it’s because he thinks she’s a fan of a childish ‘boy band’.
At the concert, Kat ignores the music and listens to her headphones instead, until she finds the lead singer of the band has singled her out and is staring right at her.
The adventure continues in this sweet Young Adult novel as Kat learns about life and what she really wants out of it. It’s a coming of age with the twist of some background into the music business and how friendships can change and grow.
This is a book that has nothing in it that teens and preteens can’t read, just a fun story of a young girl and her desire to make music, while not disappointing her family. Very uplifting with a lesson in following your dreams and learning to love.
