I Think I Love You by Allison Pearson

I Think I Love You begins in 1974 Wales, where Petra is a 13-year-old girl obsessed over teen heartthrob David Cassidy. She and her friend, Sharon, study every letter David writes to his fans in his magazine, and enter a contest to meet the star in person. Unknown to them, these letters are written by a ghostwriter named Bill, who is lying to his girlfriend about his occupation. Almost 25 years later, Petra is struggling with the death of her mother, a fractured marriage, and her old 13-year-old daughter, when she discovers a letter in her mother's closet informing her that she had won that contest. Petra flies off to meet her idol, unaware that the words in his letters that captured her heart as a teenager were really written by Bill. Allison Pearson's novel has received mostly positive reviews with The Telegraph saying, "It's a finely tuned and satisfying plot and the writing is flawless and funny, especially the sections written in Petra's voice, which manage to inhabit the tricky territory of the adolescent mind so convincingly that you can almost hear your own teenage self speaking her lines."
