Publisher Description:
Fifteen-year-old Georgia "has" to get to the Natural Affinity concert. She's obsessed with the lead singer, Jakob, and will do anything it takes to see him live. However, there is one major obstacle standing in her way: money. To earn some extra cash, she takes on a string of disastrous jobs, one ending worse than the next. Georgia also struggles with her weight, slipping grades, her lack of a boyfriend and the distance that seems to be growing between her and her best friend. Add to all that the tension with her mother, and life really starts to get complicated. True to Brigid Lowry's colorful style of writing, the book is peppered with lists Georgia writes in her diary, like "Ten things you can do with a sausage besides eating it" and "Great excuses for not doing my homework." Georgia is funny, honest, far from perfect, and will win the heart of every girl who has ever pined hopelessly after a rock star.
