Caroline Sullivan was obsessed. Sadly, her obsession was with the Bay City Rollers and it lasted four long years. Tortured by her love for the band (and their dismissal of her), she eagerly collects clippings (and on at least one occasion, a discarded cigarette butt), follows them on tour, and stalkishly hunts for information regarding their whereabouts. The Rollers provide high highs and even lower lows for Sullivan and her friends (they call themselves the Tacky Tartan Tarts), but they can't get enough. This memoir will make anyone who's ever been a fan cringe in recognition (even those with less embarrassing taste in music). Really enjoyable read.

This book was great! I myself had a strange obession with the Rollers myself, after reading this book I'm glad my teenage love(lust)was Unrequited.It did make me miss the age of innocence and teen idol worship.Oh to be 14 again lol
Ok first things first, yes I like the Bay City Rollers but it was because the music was great to dance to. The boys were cute but not my type.
Now lets talk about the book. Caroline Sullivan takes you on her journey as she obsessively follows her beloved band as a teenager.
WOW this was a great book! I laughed so hard in parts I got looks from my cats. Other parts I just read with open mouth and in disbelief on what I was reading. Sullivan does not hold anything back. She is very open and honest about her past and makes no apology about it. She borders on being a stalker. Even if you not a fan of the Bay City Rollers but you have been a fan of any musician or musicians this is a MUST read.
