Petra and Sharon, two thirteen-year-old girls, 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: the chance to meet the teen idol she loved so long ago. 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.

Listener Opinions

    " Gave up on it -- just not my cup of tea, and I was that kid of the 70's / David Cassidy fan - I think it was the Welsh slang, too much to read and nothing about this was grabbing me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 2/16/2014

    " After skipping the majority of the interview between David and the author the book came to an abrupt end. It was ok. Part 2 was obscure , but concluded it I suppose. A book that didn't need thought or effort to read, but not a gripping page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam O'Heren | 2/13/2014

    " A real joy! Takes you back to your own "teen idol" phase. Remove David Cassidy and insert whomever you had hanging all over your walls at age 13 and laugh right along with these girls-turned-bawdy wonderful women. I highly recommend the audio version (although the Welsh accents are much better than the American ones!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 2/10/2014

    " Sheesh. Allison Pearson had a perfectly serviceable coming-of-age story going, then she ruined it by tacking on a boring middle-age woman crisis. This is exactly why chick lit has a bad name. Not the worst I've read, but definitely going on the swap list TODAY. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison Petchell | 2/5/2014

    " Absolutely loved the first two thirds of this book but once it shifted to current day narrative I found myself just pushing through for the sake of it. Cleverly written and evoked strong images of my teenage years "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angie | 1/22/2014

    " Ohhh...this book was a killer to get through. First off I didn't connect with any of the characters. It was hard to follow which story she was trying to tell. When you started to get into an experience Petra or Bill were having she would tell you the story and then move on with out explaining how it ended. You just assumed what occurred and moved on to more baffling facts. After page about 120 I would just read a few lines per page because I just didn't care about the them and their whining!!! Finally, the story picked up and all came together at about page 277. So you only really need to read the last 50 pages! I am glad it's over! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy | 1/3/2014

    " Could have been a cute story, but poorly done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 1/3/2014

    " I think she is an excellent writer and the teenage years of the protagonist and her and her friends' passion for David Cassidy, are poignant and hilarious. Gossipy sort that I am, I also like the fact that Allison Pearson in married to the brilliant Anthony Lane, film critic for The New Yorker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 12/5/2013

    " I chose to read this book because I LOVED "I Don't Know How She Does It." That was definitely a 5-star book. This one is not as good, but still a fun and entertaining read. No deep thinking needed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 9/17/2013

    " I listened to the book. The actress' British accent was very dull. I kept having to pinch myself awake during my commute. But, I really enjoyed the story, despite missing the whole David Cassidy fandom. I am sucker for "I think I love you." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky Clark | 6/6/2013

    " I was in love with David Cassidy too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/18/2013

    " Such a fun read especially if you had a crush on teen heartthrob David Cassidy in the 1970s. I was more into his brother Shaun, but I so enjoyed remembering how important these crushes were and the friendships that were forged as a result of worshipping a pop star. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 10/20/2012

    " Holding off on rating until after book club. You're welcome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 7/28/2012

    " So much fun to read for anyone who was a young teenager during this time period (including me!) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nikki Young | 6/6/2012

    " I did not like this. I am not really sure why I didn't just quit reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nanette Kastner | 10/18/2011

    " I adored this book! It is perfect chick lit. I recommend all women to read this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 KJ Dellantonia | 8/20/2011

    " Oh, man, it's not you, Ms. Pearson, it's me. On the one hand, I don't have the patience for something as light and fun as this, no matter how well written. On the other hand, it's not like I want to read really deep dark stuff, either. I'm adding a shelf for "stuck halfway through." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherwestonstec | 8/4/2011

    " This was a totally fun book to read! Even though i was not a huge David Cassidy fan i could relate to this book, anyone who has ever had a crush on a music guy will! It was fun and a really good story too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julianne Harvey | 5/8/2011

    " Great read. Fast, emotional, totally spot on about teenage obsession and the feeling of futility that comes as you approach middle age. "
