With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to reread some of your favourite books. We asked our charming staff at Simon & Schuster Canada to share some of their top picks with you. First up, Marketing Associate Anneliese suggests Johnny Be Good by Paige Toon.

Paige Toon is Australian and grew up in Australia, England and America. Her books are chick lit at their best, complete with sparkly covers!

In Johnny Be Good, Meg moves from England to L.A. to be PA (personal assistant) to rock superstar Johnny Jefferson. She is adamant not to fall for him, but who’re we kidding, with a killer body and Brad Pitt-like good looks, Meg is a goner. Despite warnings from Johnny’s best friend Christian and others, it isn’t long until Meg falls head over heels for the bad boy. We follow Meg as she alternately suppresses and gives in to her feelings for Johnny. What was most interesting was the bird’s eye view into what really goes in in the world of a rock star, the drinking, the partying, the drugs, the women. This is a fun, light beach read that you can whiz through in a weekend. And don’t worry about the ending…there is a sequel!
