Living the dream is not all it's cracked up to be.

After another night of girls, music and booze, seventeen-year-old pop star Darius Zaire falls out of bed and lands on the cruddy floor of his old bedroom. No mansion, no luxury cars, no platinum records. Now he's just ordinary Darren Zegers. Some kind of nightmare has erased everything that happened to change Darren the dweeb into Darius the multimillionaire.

Now Darius has to face an ordinary day in the twelfth grade, suffering through remedial English and wondering what happened to the last three years, let alone all his fans and money. He desperately wants to return to his old life, but he is starting to worry that maybe this is reality, and it was his other life that was the dream.

Gabrielle Prendergast has written a number of books for young people, including Audacious, Capricious and Pandas on the Eastside. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband, daughter and varying numbers of chickens. For more information, visit www.angelhorn.com.

"Prendergast's hi lo novel is an interesting sci-fi adventure that hold the reader's interest from start to finish...Pinch Me would be an excellent read for struggling teenage boys who would be hooked by the music industry premise. Highly recommended." - CM Magazine

"Darius' confusion in the alternate reality in which he finds himself creates many amusing and poignant scenes...The first person tense creates an urgent tone that will draw readers along, while Darius' inner dialogue demonstrates his changing values without slowing down the pace. Several thoughtful, serious themes emerge." - Resource Links
