I Knew You Were Trouble by Paige Toon

As you all know my favourite author is Paige Toon so when I got offered the chance to review her latest book I jumped at the chance!

I Knew You Were Trouble is the second book from her young adult series and follows on from the story of a teenage girl - Jessie - who finds out her dad is the world famous rock star Johnny Jefferson! In Paiges first book (The accidental life of jessie jefferson) we learn all about Jessie and how johnny ended up as her dad and how him and his wife Meg reacted to the news he has a teenage daughter he never knew about. The book concluded with Jessie flying over to LA to meet her dad......

In 'I Knew You Were Trouble' we catch up with Jessie who is back in England and trying to keep her new life a secret from all her school friends but the paparazzi are closing in on her identity...after weeks of trying to keep it a secret,her identity is leaked to the press and she is thrown into the limelight overnight.

Jessies life is flipped upside down - she can no longer trust her friends and is risking losing her boyfriend so Jessie knows she has no choice but to leave her stepdad to move to LA to live with Johnny and his family until the limelight dies down but its never going to be that simple was it?

Life isnt easy in LA though - new friends to make and old ones reappear but are they just asking for trouble? Luckily Jessie has her dad and stepmum Meg to rely on and has the chance to get to know her two younger brothers properly but with her boyfriend and stepdad the other side of the world she starts to feel like she doesnt belong there but when an opportunity to join a up and coming band as the lead singer comes along its too much to refuse but will people accept her as her own person or will she always be known as Johnny's daughter? And will she stay faithful to her boyfriend?

Jessie has some big decisions to make but where is her home - England or LA?

Once again Paige Toon had me gripped from start to finish. This is classed as a young adults book but im 28 and loved it and even though its a follow on from The Accidental Life Of Jessie Jefferson I wouldnt necessarily say you would have to had read this one to understand the storyline so don't let that put you off!

I rate this 5 stars! *****
