Prepare to meet the real McFly …

In 2003, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter came together and formed what would become one of the most popular and successful bands in the UK. Just teenagers at the time, they were catapulted into the limelight and had to adapt quickly to their new-found fame – and everything that came with it. Now, at last, they have decided to tell their story, in full and revealing detail.

Speaking with candour and their trademark humour, Tom, Danny, Harry and Dougie share both the stories of their own lives and that of McFly. They give their personal insights into their contrasting childhoods, the individual paths that led them to the band, the struggles they have each overcome, their love lives and, of course, their music.

Packed with previously untold stories, a lot of laughter and the occasional tear, Unsaid Things offers a privileged look into the lives of four guys who started out as bandmates and became best friends. Their unique camaraderie radiates from every page and by the end of the book, you’ll know them almost as well as they know each other …

My Review:
Unsaid Things is the autobiography by McFly. If you’ve never heard of them, let me introduce them to you. McFly are a pop/rock band from England and they’ve been going since 2004, so it’s about time they released a book. Even before I had this book in my hands, I knew I was going to love it. I have been a fan of McFly since the beginning when I was an 11 year old child, and now as a 19 year old adult I still love them just as much. I have been lucky enough to see McFly live five times, and I met the whole band at a meet and greet back in 2011 which was a dream come true. So you can imagine how excited I was for this book.

The book starts off with a prologue which is a little story of the guys in a hotel. It was an interesting beginning and very funny. It is then spread out into thirteen chapters, each chapter about an important part of their career. From each member’s childhood to the wedding of Tom Fletcher, we get an insight into the lives of the band we all know and love.

My favourite chapter was definitely the story surrounding Dougie Poynter going into rehab. At the time there were a lot of rumors going around, the main one was that he had a broken heart after a bad break-up from Frankie Stanford who’s from The Saturdays. I was one of those fans who believed a broken heart was the reason, but it was a lot more than that. It had been going on for a long time. My own heart broke when I read about it, and I shed a lot of tears.

Until now, McFly had kept a lot about their life secret. But in Unsaid Things, you find out so much that you never knew before. If you think you know McFly, think again.

Check out this trailer for the book. It is absolutely hilarious!
