Our story

Hi guys, we're One Direction!

Here, in our official book, you can find out everything that's gone on over the last eighteen months, the inspirations behind our world tour, all the special people we've met, places we've been, and moments we've shared. From London to Sydney, New York to Tokyo, we've played to our incredible fans across the globe, seen our albums hit #1 on the charts, and even made our own movie—wow! Now we can share the ups and downs of it all with you, our fans. This is our story. It's still hard for us to believe that a few months ago we were just five kids with a dream. It's been a crazy trip—and this is the true behind-the-scenes story of how we got here. It's our way of saying thank you for all the love you've shown us, from every corner of the world!

Lots of love, 1D xx

Editorial Reviews

It wasn't their idea: The British group One Direction was the brainchild of a guest judge on the British X Factor. Formed in July 2010, this band of cute boys has flourished beyond anyone's fondest hopes. To date, they have sold more than 14 million singles and million albums, won several awards, and toured to large swooning audience. In this "100% official" illustrated book, they share their stories, their thoughts and their experiences since they rocked the world of rock. (P.S. The Exclusive Barnes & Noble Edition contains a special foldout photograph!)

VOYA - Stacy Holbrook
Formed for the British series The X Factor in 2010, British-Irish pop group One Direction (1D) entered a whirlwind of fame. They quickly acquired a fan base all over the world, won multiple awards, and starred in their own documentary. In this official book, each member of the five-person boy band reveals his thoughts under the same seven headings. Because of this, some information is repeated between band members, while other information is expanded upon. Full-color photos from professional photographers and from 1D's Instagram site accompany each band member's writing, as do graphically appealing headings, subheadings, and pull quotes. A group interview about how the band members relate to one another can be found in the back of the book, and a poster is included on the reverse side of the dust jacket. The writing in this official story of 1D is like reading a magazine interview without showing the interviewer's questions—the text can seem cut and pasted together, often resulting in a scattering of ideas and not a lot of detail. The writing is not a biographical account of the lads—all of the information happens after their X Factor appearance—so it would help for teens to know of the band before reading this book. Also, the information presented may quickly become dated. This being so, the short pieces of conversational writing, coupled with full-page glamour shots of band members, will definitely appeal to 1D fans as well as reluctant readers.

Harry grabbed your wrists as you both lie on the sandy beach. You both walked back to the house when when you saw Niall standing there almost looking jealous. You walked to your room when Niall called out to you. "Uh.. Danielle..Do you have a minute or two?" "Uh yeah..." You stood there gripping onto thr rail. You mostly tuned Niall out until you heard the word "love" you immediatly listened. "As i was saying, thats how i feel..." You dont know what to do so you just nod your head and say you have to go back to your room. You wake up right when your brother opens the door, "Wake up Danielle!" Youvsee Zayn enter your room walking around your room. "Why do i have to get up so early?" "Dont you remember... Harry wanted to talk to you?" IF YOU WANT PART 2 GO TO THE NEXT RESULT AND PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU LIKED IT! THIS WAS MY FIRST FAN FICTION! HOPE YOU LIKED IT!

Jena walked up the few steps to the plane. Even Praire was there. Niall put a fake smile on his face and waved. Jena ran to Niall and gave him a huge hug. " Jena please yu gotta leave. Here i got yu something." He said and pulled out a necklace. He handed it to Jena. It was a best friend necklace. She had the BEST part of it. Niall must have the other half. Jena kissed him and walked up the the steps to the plane. She wiped her tears away and waved. " I love yu" Niall mouthed to her. *SIX YEARS LATER* " ZAYN!" Jena yelled across the airport. " Jena!" Zayn yelled back and ran to her. He picked her up and spun her around. " I missed yu sis!" He said putting her down." I did too!" Jena said. Zayn picked up her belongings. Jena looked way prettier than when she left. Her brown hair was know black with blonde hi lights. She wore black jeans and a light brown leather jacket. " Guess wat?" Jena said all of a sudden. " Wat?" Zayn replyed. " No your supposed to guess. Well too late im getting married in a week!" She said excited. " Wat? With who?" Zayn asked loading her things in the limo and climbing in with Jena. " Well at the boarding school i met this amazing guy name Drake. He asked me out and i accepted. Last year he asked me to marry him and i said yes. We been planning everything ever since." She replyed . " How long have yu two been dating?" Zayn asked. " Umm three years." She replyed. The limo parked in front of their house. Jena climbed out and so did Zayn. "Um Zayn where are we?" Jena asked giving Zayn a confused look." Our home. Have yu forgotten?" He asked. " Dude i have been away for six years. How would i remember this place?" She said alittle too loud. Zayn opened the front door and put Jenas things in her room. Jena looked around. She saw a photo with one direction in it. Her eyes scaned the photo. She stopped at a blode haired guy with blue eyes. Something about his face was famillar but she couldnt remember wat. Suddenly there was a knock on the door that made her jump. "Come in !" She called. The band walked in. " Jena yu do remember these guys right. " Zayn asked. " Wow dude your sis is smokin hot." A guy with curly hair called out. " Shut up!" Zayn said slapping his smile. Jena laughed. " Of course i do." Jena replyed back to Zayn. She walked and stood in front of a gray eyed man. " You are Louis oh and yu owe me twenty bucks from last time." Jena said with a smirk. " Oh shot i thought yu forgot about that." Louis replyed. She stood in front of a brown eyed and almost bald man. " You are Liam." She said and moved on to the curly haired one. " Let me guess... Harry. " " Right yu are!" He replyed. Jena moved on and stood in front of the blonde haired one. " Hmmm yu must be Niall. Something about yu is familliar i just dont know wat." Jena said. NEXT PT WILL BE ON NEXT RESULT PT FOUR IS ON RESULT TEN IM KIMBERLY

Fellow Directioners, if you are a dedicated fan you must get this book now! You won't regret buying it. From the front cover to the last page, you'll enjoy every single bit of it. Each member has equal amount of pages and each boy talks about their experiences on tour and in life. I love how this book makes you know more about them.
