TITLE REVEAL: We are squealing with excitement over the title for Chris Russell’s second book

Chris Russell’s brilliant debut ‘Songs About a Girl’ has been one of our very favourite reads of 2016. It’s one of those books that we could legit read on a loop – THAT GOOD.


When Charlie is asked to take behind the scenes photos for boy band legends Fire&Lights, she can’t say no. She quickly becomes caught between bad boy Gabriel and boy-next-door Olly, but when the rivalry in the band threatens to ruin everything, Charlie discovers a shocking secret hidden in their song lyrics…

Well, now you need to hear some music from the actual book, right? RIGHT. Brand new music from Chris Russell and ‘Songs About a Girl’ just for you:

And the title of ‘Songs About a Girl 2’ is….

‘Songs About Us’


Here’s what’s going down in book two:

Two months on from the explosive finale to book one, Charlie’s life is almost back to normal again: rebuilding her relationship with her father, hanging out with best mate Melissa, and worrying about GCSEs. All the while, Gabe’s revelations about her mother are never far from her mind. And neither is Gabe.

It’s not long before Charlie is pulled back into the world of Fire&Lights – but the band seem different this time. But then again, so is she…

Meanwhile, tensions between Gabe and Olly continue to run high, leading to more turmoil between the band members and press than ever before. But when Gabriel and Charlie stumble upon yet another startling truth that links them together – everything they have stands to implode in front of them.

‘Songs About Us’ will be released 13th July 2017. 

You should probs go and pre-order it now (we totally already have).
