The Average Girl


WHAT A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! This story transported me back to a time in my life when being an avid pop and movie star fanatical fan, was a huge part of growing up. As a twelve year old, in 1964, I would have given anything to have met The Beatles. I loved those four mop-tops with all my heart, living and breathing their music every waking moment. Imagine if The Average Girl actually existed and Olivia could arrange for me to meet my idols. My mind boggles at the thought.

I have never read a book like this before. It’s much more than the usual boy meets girl romance. Olivia, whilst in the business of making dreams come true for her clients, finds herself inadvertently swapping roles. Organising meetings with famous people is second nature. Calm, cool, collected…three words that yesterday would have aptly described Olivia. But today she is vastly different. What a difference a day makes. Or should I say what a difference a movie star makes to the average girl.

This well written story is heartfelt and has a reality about it I found myself being swept into. I couldn’t help but put myself in Olivia’ shoes. I felt her joy, her pain and the sheer excitement of being thrown into the fantasy world of being star-struck by her idol.
