from the back of the book:
Back in the Eighties, Mickey DeFalco was America's teenage heartthrob with spiky gelled hair, slanted sideburns, and a number-one hit single, "Sweet Days", a sappy love song he wrote after his high school sweetheart, Lynn Mahoney, broke his heart. Now approaching middle age, Mickey is lucky to land a singing gig at a bar mitzvah. So the one-hit wonder-boy is making a different kind of comeback - returning to his old stomping grounds in Queens, living with his parents, and sleeping in his childhood bed. Just like in high school. And speaking of blasts from the past, Lynn is also back in town - as beautiful, beguiling, and baffling as ever...
Sometimes life can feel like a broken record, But even a one-hit wonder deserves a second chance.

My thoughts
This was a great book to get lost in. Mickey's anger from his past has his making one bad decision after another, which is how he ends up moving back in with his parents. As far as the ending... I can only hope that both Mickey and Lynn have really put the past behind them and are able to live as functioning adults.

An entertaining read that was laugh-out-loud funny. An overnight success with a best selling record, Mickey made many bad choices and ended up broke. He returns home where he finds out that the girl, who broke his heart, ran away, and was the inspiration for his hit record, has also returned. Will they be able to put the past behind them and move on to an adult relationship?
