Thursday Tunes: Song of the Month: Planetary (GO!) chosen by CJ Skuse
C.J. Skuse, author of Pretty Bad Things, was born in 1980 in Weston-super-Mare, England. Loves: My Chemical Romance, 1980s sitcoms, gummy bears and Nanook from The Lost Boys. Hates: omelettes, carnivals and coughing. The book C.J. would most like to have written is Twilight. C.J. has a First Class degree in Creative Studies in English and gained a distinction for her MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University. Her second teen novel for Chicken House, Rockoholic (review here), is released in March 2011. She is currently working on a third stand-alone novel for teenagers.
Jody loves Jackson Gaitlin. At his only UK concert, she's right at the front. But when she's caught in the crush and sent back stage she has more than concussion to contend with. Throw in a menacing manager, a super-wired super-star, and a curly-wurly, and she finds herself taking home more than just a poster. It's the accidental kidnapping of the decade. But what happens if you've a rock god in your garage that doesnt want to leave? Jody's stuck between a rock-idol and a hard place!
As you can imagine Rockaholic is chock full of fantastic music reference, it is my pleasure to have the first song of the month chosen by Claire as we have similar tastes in music [ : D ]
