Charlie Matthews’ love story begins in a pebble-dashed house in suburban Bolton, at a time when most little boys want to grow up to be Michael Jackson, and girls want to be Princess Diana. On his ninth birthday, Auntie Jan gives him a gift that will last a lifetime: a seven-inch single called ‘Lucky Star’.
Casting Madonna in the role of his spirit guide, Charlie draws on the pop icon’s audacity and ambition to help him find the courage to overcome his own obstacles and become a success in life. His obsession sees him through some tough times, but in order to be truly happy, he’ll need to find his own inner strength.
A charming, heart-warming and surprising story about love, friendship and learning to be true to yourself, by journalist and LGBTQ+ activist Matt Cain.
41 year-old Ted Ainsworth has worked in his family's ice-cream business, in the quiet Lancashire town of St Luke's-on-Sea, for his whole life. But the truth is, Ted has never wanted to work for the family firm - he doesn't even like ice cream, although he's never dared tell his domineering parents. When Ted's husband abruptly leaves him, Ted realises he's got nothing. He doesn't know how he can go on.
But Ted isn't alone. His best friend, the flamboyant Andrea, is determined to help Ted - she hasn't forgotten that he once helped her through her worst time. She knows that Ted has a secret dream, and she's going to help him on his way. Despite his parents, the disapproval of locals - and a series of mysterious letters that may threaten the happiness of Ted's nearest and dearest . . .
