    Description1974. Thirteen-year-old Petra and her best friend Sharon are desperate to win a competition to meet their teen idol. Meanwhile Bill is unhappy in his job, ghostwriting the fanzine of the man so adored by the girls - and slightly unnerved by the extreme emotions of some of the fans. Fast forward to 1998. Petra is pushing forty and on the brink of divorce. While cleaning out her mother's wardrobe she finds a letter declaring her the winner of the competition she and Sharon had agonised over decades ago. So, twenty-four years after entering the competition the girls claim their prize and are flown out for an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas to meet their hero at last. Bill, now the magazine's publisher, flies out with them...Poignant, hilarious, joyful, profoundly moving and uplifting, I Think I Love You captures what we learn about love, life and friendship through the universal experience of worshipping a teen dream. It will resonate with readers everywhere. 'Hilarious and beautiful...Funny, insightful, wonderful' Easy Living

    Review quote
    "Allison Pearson is one of the stars of her generation" Evening Standard "If you had forgotten what it's like to be fourteen - or, indeed, are the parent of somebody who is - this is a novel not to be missed" Daily Mail "Hilarious and beautiful...Funny, insightful, wonderful" Easy Living "Anyone who can make me laugh and cry in equal measure gets my vote" Grazia "Pearson's knack for observing the ups and downs of ordinary folk (and all our faults and foibles) is pitch-perfect and as funny as it is poignant" Glamour
