I picked this up on a whim because i always judge books by their covers, and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. Cathy, Gerty and Sasha are middle-aged fans of boy band 110 per¢, and their obsession causes conflict with their acquaintances and loved ones.

What I liked: How no punches are pulled. The music’s fluffy, but the situations aren’t. Consiglio’s not afraid to use dark humor. See: The only straight male fan of 110 per¢.
What I didn’t like: That it wasn’t longer. “110 per¢” is a really fast read.
What I learned: Don’t steal. Family first.
