She's got it bad, and he ain't good-he's in her garage?

"I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me..."

Gonna have to face it: Jody's addicted to Jackson Gatlin, frontman of The Regulators, and after her best bud Mac scores tickets, she's front and center at his sold-out concert. But when she gets mashed in the moshpit and bodysurfs backstage, she's got more than a mild concussion to deal with. By the next morning, the strungout rock star is coming down in her garage. Jody-oops- kind of kidnapped him. By accident. With a Curly Wurly candy bar. And now he doesn't want to leave.

Read from the Book

From's not Jackson. It can't be Jackson. Jackson never goes backstage to visit the fans.But it is Jackson.O. M. G.Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, Jesus please no. Oh no. Oh no, I'm not ready. Oh I look a mess. Do I still smell of puke? This is too much. I'm going to faint. What will I do, what am I going to do?! This man is the most perfect man in the world and I look like crap! My mind is blank. I should be squeeing. I should be about ready to bungee jump off Cloud Nine, but I feel sick. I do want to meet him, ask him if it was a dream that he gave the moon rock back to me, tell him how much he means to me, how I'm an outcast like him, how my parents got divorced too, tell him about the Stephen King books I've read, about the thirty-seven times I've watched their DVD, how his birthday is twenty-six days before mine. Tell him I'm his Number One Fan.
