The Love Song of Jonny Valentine
by Teddy Wayne

The Love Song of Jonny Valentine

Eleven year old pop singer and heartthrob, Jonny Valentine, is smart, funny and cynical.  He has mastered music industry speak and image control, but struggles with some of the same issues any preteen must navigate.  The novel follows Jonny as he contemplates his first kiss, searches for an absent father and endures a cross country tour.  This is a funny novel that skewers the pop music industry and the ways in which celebrities are marketed and branded.
