We all secretly want to be a pop star and reading ‘Sing’ lets us spend a few hours pretending that we are one. Just judge. You know you feel the same way…


HEARTBREAK. What do you mean you don’t like a dose of agony? Experiencing fictional characters’ heartbreak makes us feel SO much better about our own. Okay, you can judge us on that one…

A gorgeous, summery, beach-side setting. While we suffer under the wild moods of the British summer, we DREAM of the American coast. Genuinely.

The friendship between Lily, Tess and Sammy. We’re suckers for female friendship in all its messy, intricate, wonderful glory and ‘Sing’ has that in spades.


There are some definite similarities between Lily Ross and Taylor Swift. So Swifties, this is for you!
