Description
For Angel Ahmadi, life is only about one thing: The Ark -- a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark's fandom has given her everything -- her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world. Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He's their frontman -- and playing in a band is all he's ever dreamed of doing. It's just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare. Because that's the problem with dreaming -- eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be. A funny, wise and heartbreakingly true coming-of-age novel, I was born for this is a stunning reflection of modern teenage life, and the power of believing in something -- especially yourself.
