David BedfordWhen Judith Kristen decided as a 15 year old girl that she was going to see The Beatles she skipped school to see the group arrive at JFK airport, and then attempted to sneak into their press conference - with some success. The reason was her obsession: George Harrison.
Once she had set eyes on that face, nothing, and no one, was going to stop her from meeting her idol. What follows is a fantastic journey through a teenager's eyes as she follows her dream boy around her native Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey, and even manages to see the Beatles performance at the historic Shea Stadium concert on 15th August 1965.
The story is incredible; the adventure is incredible; her patience and perseverance defy belief at times to make for a book that, especially for second generation fans like me, finally gives a taste of what Beatlemania was really like.
For all the lengthy, fact-filled historically accurate Beatles books out there - like mine! - this is a must for those who want a first-hand taste of what it was really like to be a Beatles fan while the group were at their peak. Judith set out to meet George Harrison, and what happened was pretty amazing to enable the two of them to finally set eyes on each other - but I won't spoil that for you.
Buy the book, and smile as you read it! I did.
