Blurb: Life is fabulous for Jonathan Parish.
He’s seventeen, out and proud and ready to party through senior year with his posse of best girlfriends. But the year starts off with the wrong kind of bang when Jonathan — in an inebriated lapse of judgment — sleeps with a friend of his… A girlfriend!
When word gets around that hot-but-previously-unavailable Jonathan might be on the market, the school’s ‘it’ girl approaches him with a proposal: pretend to be her boyfriend, and achieve popularity like he’s never known. But popularity isn’t what Jonathan wants. And suddenly, going back into the closet becomes Jonathan’s only way to get what he’s after — a trip to see Kylie Minogue.
Review: Wow! I loved this book. The Straight Road To Kylie stars Jonathan Parish. Now, Jonathan is an out and proud senior at Winter Park High. What is his obsession? The amazing and incredibly beautiful Kylie Minogue. And trust me; he would do anything to meet her, even turned straight.
I loved Jonathan Parish. His obsession for Kylie reminded me so much of my obsession for Nelly Furtado. It’s just so cute and funny! Kylie means the world to him like Nelly means the world to me. I loved Jonathan’s friends. They seemed so cool and down to earth. Yes, they had their little flaws, but everyone does. I really liked Laura. Some readers won’t like her, but I fell for her. She was a really cool bitch.
All in all, I loved this novel. The plot was solid, the characters seemed real, and the Kylie Minogue references reminded me so much of her music. I love her! She may not be my favorite artist of all time, but her music is fun and I must agree with the author. It is so sad that Kylie’s music has not reach every single soul on earth. She is just fantastic.
I recommend this novel to all the Kylie fans out there and to any who wants to read something new and fresh. Trust me; you won’t get this book out of your head.
