Pub. Date:
Megastar Jonny Valentine, eleven-year-old iconof bubblegum pop, knows that the fans don't love him for who he is. His image, his voice, and even his hairdo have been packaged--by his LA label and by hishard-partying manager-mother--into bite-size pieces for easy digestion, slidingdown the gullet of mass culture, the biggest appeal to the widest demographic. But somewhere inside the relentless marketing machine is still a little boy, devoted to his mother and determined to find his absent father among thecountless, faceless fans--isn't there? Teddy Wayne delivers a twisted, brilliant, and viciously funny coming-of-age story.

display_description "Called the angel of pop, 11-year-old megastar Jonny Valentine has everything but a father . . . and a childhood. Wayne's novel follows the preadolescent's national tour as he wows his tween fans (and the occasional adult predator) while secretly searching the Internet for his absent father, whom he hasn't seen since he was 5 or 6. In the meantime, his hard-partying mother, who doubles as his manager, is trying to ensure that the young star's career doesn't go into eclipse."--Booklist.
