This book has been on my ‘to read’-list for quite some time. I was so happy when Maxx handed me this book, and may I add, without confetti! I think she learned her lesson.
Billy and Me is about Sophie May, an ordinary girl from an ordinary town who finds herself a not so ordinary boyfriend. And that boyfriend has an even less ordinary lifestyle.
Now, some may say that this book is just a well written fan-fiction that’s been made into a book. But as Giovanna herself is maried to McFly’s Tom Fletcher, I wondered if some of this is based on her own life. At the end of the book she tells us in a Q&A that the idea of it all is indeed based om her own life. But she also says that the celebrity girlfriends are seen in a certain way by the media. She wanted people to read about the different sides of heaving a famous boyfriend.
I think Giovanna did a good job. Yes, it looks just like fan-fiction, but I did like it. An easy read with a lovely plot. But I wonder what Maxx thought about it. I have a feeling that this book was not really her cup of tea, but I could be completely wrong. Although, I don’t think I am.
So Maxx, finish this book and let me (and everybody else) know!
