Product description

Big dreams, rivalries and romance collide in this must-read YA novel for K-pop fans everywhere! ‘I’m still giddy over this electrifying, big-hearted, all-kill smash of a debut. I couldn’t put it down.’ BECKYALBERTALLI, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

‘[A] riveting tale of friendship, love, and passion’ TEEN VOGUE

Candace is your average Korean-American teen – who can’t believe her luck when she’s picked from thousands of auditionees to travel to Seoul and train to become a K-pop star.

There’s only one problem: she’s really not cut out for it. The language is hard, the girls are mean, and the number-one rule is NO DATING – which proves impossible after she meets superstar idol One.J and fellow trainee YoungBae.

In the battle to debut, Candace must decide whether a spot in the most hyped K-pop girl group of all time is really worth risking everything …

A YA romantic coming-of-age novel about big dreams, rivalries and friendship, set against the vibrant landscape of Seoul, South Korea

For fans of Jessica Jung’s Shine, Axie Oh’s XOXO and Lyla Lee’s I’ll Be the One

A must for any K-pop fan: a behind-the-scenes look at the Korean pop industry, whilst exploring themes of expectations, female empowerment and determination

Author Stephan Lee is a Korean-American writer, YA enthusiast and ardent K-pop fan!

    So bad it's good

    The plot is okay, with some very cliché antagonists and strange relationships. I found the whole thing of the main character dating her ultimate bias who just so happens to be her age a little unrealistic. But overall I liked the book. The writing is extremely decent and the characters are good. I enjoyed it a lot as a k-pop fan myself!
