I am a Directioner and even I admit that Harry makes my heart pitter pat more than the others. Can't help it. He's just irresistible and in that green beanie with his curls poking out(!)...don't even get me started! Everyone has a type and Harry is mine. But I would never say I don't like one of ...

I actually own 2 copies of this book, it is that good! This book is told in the boys' (Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan & Zayn Malik) point of view. It's an inspiring story because literally three years ago these boys were just regular teen boys who were going to school, going off to school or going to work at a bakery. Now they are international popstars. And it's all because of us (the fans/directioners). One Direction only came in third place on The X Factor (UK) but because of us, we helped make them what they are today. And this book is like a thank you from them to us.

One Direction consits of 5 good- looking members. Liam, Louis, Zayn, Niall, and my favourite Harry. This books tells all of their young fans out there how their lives our out on the road today. Everything from backstage passes, and tickets, too realsing their new album. What can I say they have totally captured my heart, espically Harry. Everytime I hear there music, every problem I am having just seems too disapper all because of them. They are truly inspring too their young fans out there. Love you One Direction


AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Zayn is engaged to Perry Edwards!!!
