Move over Donny Osmond and Make way for David Cassidy
Who remembers from the mid-70's Decade , the days of Donny Osmond , The Jackson Five and the rising star of the mid 1970's courtesy of The Partridge Family - Mr. David Cassidy.
Authoress Allison Pearson remembers clearly as her latest book is released "I Think I Love You" on July 9th 2010 in New Zealand.
Review: I Think I Love You - Allison Pearson-2010
Were you a fan of The Partridge Family, Did you glue yourself to the Television whenever the hunky David Cassidy made an appearance ? Did you have your bedroom walls adorned with David Cassidy posters (For Me it was in the years of Leonardo Dicaprio and Heath Ledger). This book flashes back to the year 1974 , David Cassidy is the new teen heartthrob and for Welsh teenager Petra , it's like Donny Who ? ,I only care about David Cassidy.Her Bible growing up had nothing to do with religion but was in fact "The Essential David Cassidy Magazine" , whom had no relation in fact with David Cassidy himself, but a Music Journalist Bill.
Fast-Forward Twenty-Four Years later........ Petra , is flicking through a magazine and comes across "The Ultimate David Cassidy Quiz" - The Prize, to meet David Cassidy. For Petra, this is a dream come true, but as she claims her prize. Is this the perfect moment she has been waiting for or have her expectation preceded her ? This will appeal to anyone who's lusted after a celebrity - no matter what generation your pin-up comes from. It's a funny but poignant story that was well worth the wait. And the book ends with an interview the author did with her own teen hero, and answers that most vital of questions: is brown really Cassidy's favourite colour?
