I Think I Love You

A novel by Allison Pearson

Bestselling author of I Don't Know How She Does It

"Petra has a piercing wit and a boundless charm, but it's Pearson's insights into friendship, celebrity worship from the inside out, and the knocks you take in life that create a winning novel of hope, lost and found."
—Publisher's Weekly

About the Book

Petra and Sharon are both desperately in love with a world-famous pop star. Together they pore over his photos, read his fan club letters, and even enter a contest whose winners will meet him in person. Twenty years later, Petra is pushing forty, on the brink of divorce, and fighting with her own thirteen-year-old daughter when she is given the opportunity of a lifetime. A moving tale of friendship and celebrity, I Think I Love You perfectly captures the intensity of first love – a love that never entirely goes away.
