This was a fast fun read. I made it through in just two days. It feels like the boys are speaking right to you and you really do learn a lot of cool facts about them, the show (X Factor) and their journey to becoming pop starts. I really liked how the book was organised. Each guy has a chapter in which they pretty much cover similar details. That may sound boring to you but it is actually cool because you get each of their perspectives. At the end of each of their chapter is a good list of random facts. All throughout there are pictures - quite a few of them so the book isn't as long as it looks.

Dare to DreamI bought this book for my granddaughter and she loves, loves, loves it. She loves anything to do with One Direction but regardless of that, this book is good value. Great quality and beautiful photos. It arrived much faster than I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the book, and the service. I'm not sure which repetition of reading the book my granddaughter has reached now. I know it's a good few more than one, and she only got it at Christmas.

I bought One Direction's music and videos and I loved all of their songs. They sing with such beautiful harmony and I can't wait for their next album. I bought this eBook because I wanted to see if the boys are as down-to-earth as they appear in their videos. I certainly wasn't disappointed. The five angel-faced singers all have heart-warming stories, and the way they all wrote about their families was wonderful. It's great that the boys all get along and take care of each other. They are now more than brothers. The photos in this eBook showed up beautifully and in full colour. The pictures give an insight into their lives before they became One Direction. Simon Cowell couldn't have picked a more endearing, compatible, handsome group of singers than these five boys. He must be so proud of them. They are all exceptional!

Harry:
Harry is such a fun-loving and entertaining lad, and his voice is absolutely fabulous!!!! When I first heard him sing, I stopped what I was doing to listen. I was surprised to hear such a strong voice coming from such a young singer. It's beautiful and unique, but he also sounds a bit like Mick Jagger. It was nice to read that Harry loves his family, and I love how he treats his fans. If you watch One Direction videos, you'll clearly see how he interacts with them. The fans adore him, and why wouldn't they? His face and his voice are captivating. The fact that he's not afraid to cry in public shows how down-to-earth and honest he is. He mentioned in this book how he used to sing Elvis songs. Oh, I'd love to hear 1D sing Elvis ballads. That would be cool. Harry also wrote that he once sang Brian Adams' song, 'Summer of 69' in a competition and won. That's one of my all-time favorite songs, so please, One Direction, sing that one.

This is a book that you will keep for life, read over and over again, and get emotional. The lives of One Direction all in a book. What more could you ask for? There are exclusive photos that would make you laugh and drool. I love this book, and would buy another copy any day. So, if you want to buy this book don't think twice.
