Four boys. One band. No Chance.

Chris and George are best friends, and they want to be rockstars.

Unfortunately, a childhood spent playing in the school orchestra and listening to Jimmy Nail has left them a little fluffy around the edges, and at the age of 23, their acoustic duo Satellite doesn't resemble Bon Jovi nearly as much as they'd planned.

So how do two ordinary boys from a sleepy village go about taking on the cut-throat world of rock 'n' roll?

They're just going to have to fake it.

True to life, funny and uplifting, Mockstars is a coming-of-age story about friendship and chasing the rock 'n' roll dream. Inspired by the real-life tour diaries of the author's band The Lightyears, Mockstars is a refreshingly different musical odyssey.

Praise for Mockstars:

'Very funny... Induced three inner chuckles and one belly laugh in just over four minutes.' Kevin Sampson, author of Powder

'Finally, a rock 'n' roll novel that people can properly relate to.' Ciaran Jeremiah, The Feeling

'Hilarious - it's The Inbetweeners meets Spinal Tap!' Alex Marsh, author of Sex & Bowls & Rock and Roll

What readers are saying about Mockstars:

'...for all the folk I annoyed the hell out of with explosive laughter and giggling - I recommend that you read this in public and get your own back.'

'A really honest and amusing account of the camaraderie between the band members. A great read, funny yet poignant.'

'The new Bridget Jones brought to life in a male, aspiring rock star from the home counties. Littered in equal measure with laugh out loud and hide under the covers, did he really write that?, moments.'

'Very, very funny book. I had to stop reading it on the train as I was in a quiet compartment.'

'If Richard Curtis and Douglas Adams got together and wrote a book about a struggling rock-band you'd get this. Fast paced, brimming with charm and frankly hilarious. I laughed so hard I coughed tea through my nose and nearly ruined my iPad.'
