Join the UK’s hottest new boyband on their rollercoaster ride to superstardom, with the follow-up to the Number 1 bestselling book One Direction: Forever Young: Our Official X Factor Story.

Last year they were just five normal boys, who didn’t even know each other, dreaming of being up on stage, with fans screaming their names... so much has happened for One Direction since then!

Following their huge success on The X Factor, and the hysteria they caused wherever they went on The X Factor tour, One Direction are quickly becoming the UK’s biggest boyband, and the pop act that everyone wants to meet. And this is just the beginning...

With their first single due in the summer, and their debut album in November, 2011 looks set to be the year of One Direction!

Here, in their own official book, Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis each tell the story of their amazing journeys in full—from teen hopefuls auditioning for The X Factor to pop superstars in the making, and now to living their dreams out. And the boys are so grateful to their fans for getting them there, they want to give you all an exclusive peek inside their world...

Stunningly designed and jam packed full of exclusive unseen photos of the band on and off stage, plus private captured moments, the incredible story of One Direction’s rise to fame is a must-have for any true fan and the perfect gift for Christmas.

This book was a really fun read. It was interesting to learn more about each member of One Direction. The most unique thing about this book was the fact that each member wrote their own portion of the book. I definitely know much more about each member now and I'm looking forward to their next book.

I'd highly recommend this to any fan of One Direction. This could also qualify for a Christmas read because each member wrote about their Christmas break from the X Factor show. I may have to start watching the X Factor because it seems like a really good show.

I decided not to rate this because it was a biography.


  1. I think this would make such a great gift to fans. I'm not a fan of them, but it's fun to have something like this if you like them. ;)

  2. My cousin is a directioner and she own every 1D related book. I might read this one.


Hello there! (: Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one!
