I Think I Love You

The chance to meet the teen idol she loved so long ago A moving tale of friendship and celebrity I Think I Love You perfectly captures the intensity of first love a love that never entirely goes awa. It s 1974 and Petra and her friends are all in love with singer David Cassidy Petra is the ultimate Cassidy fan making collages of pictures of the singer subscribing to his fan magazine and knowing all there is to know about David Petra hopes that someday all this knowledge may come in useful should she ever meet David and the two fall hopelessly in loveOne of the biggest sources of Petra s knowledge is a David Cassidy fan magazine And while the letters from fans appear to be responded to by Cassidy it s really Bill writing the responses He s a college graduate trying to break into the rock and roll journalism scene whose taken a detour to the Cassidy magazine to pay the bills Bill is tasked with coming up with a Cassidy uestionnaire contest The prize a trip to LA to visit the set of the Partridge Family And of all the people out there Petra is most suited to winThe first half of I Think I Love You is a coming of age story about Petra and her friends The story contrasts Petra s love and obsessiveness about Cassidy with Bill s reaction to his job The two both know about Cassidy than most but seeing how each reacts to having such a fount of knowledge is intriguing Bill hides what he does from his girlfriend for fear of her thinking less of him Were it not for the hook of the Cassidy obsession I Think I Love You might not be as entertaining as it is Petra s relationship with her friends and family is intriguing especially given that her mother doesn t really understand or support Petra s interest in the pop music star The second half of the story finds Petra in 1998 facing her mother s funeral and her husband walking out on her Going through her mother s things she finds out that she actually won the contest in 1974 but that her mother hid this from her Petra must come to terms with that as well as her own relationship with her mother and her husbandAs I said before without the Cassidy hook this novel wouldn t be nearly as entertaining as it is Anyone who s ever had a youthful obsession with something or someone will identify with young Petra And those who have looked back on our youthful loves will identify with the older Petra of the second half of the book

Petra and Sharon two thirteen year old girls are both desperately in love with a world famous pop star Together they pore over his photos read his fan club letters and even enter a contest whose win. Hello World there s a book that I m reading Come on it s CrappyUgh it started out well enough very evocative of adolescence with an interesting Welsh setting Though sometimes the dialog felt forced as though some characters were just setting for a spike But everything went majorly pear shaped in the second half The author took a character I had cared about and made her deeply unappealing She also fell into the talking heads trap where there s no real action just people yammering at each other Again there were characters that existed for no reason except to set up the main characters for obvious long overdue revelations It s like Pearson started writing a book and decided not to actually finish it I m readingAnd right in the middle of an okay bookWhen all at once I wake upFrom something that keeps knockin at my brainBefore I go insaneI hold my kindle to my headAnd spring up in my bedScreaming out the words I dreadI think I hate youONE STARAlso I read that the author said some messed up stuff about princess beatrice in bikini called her a Miss Piggy So nuts to her make that Zero stars Burn

    It took me a little while to get in to this story I abandoned it earlier this summer when I couldn't connect with the mindset of the pre teen Petra who narrates the first 13 of the book After listening to a repeat of interview with Allison Pearson on Fresh Air a few weeks ago I picked it up again and stuck with it I'm so glad I did there is some really beautiful prose in this story While the plot seeks to examine the phase of teenage obses
