Product Description

About the Author

Janet Celia Waters was born in Burgaw, North Carolina in 1955. She then lived in Richmond Hill, Georgia until she was six years old. Her parents purchased Hutson Hardware and opened up Hutson Surf and Skate in Pensacola, Florida. In 1973, Janet took over running the surf shop. She attended Liberty Bible College, also in Pensacola. She received two educations at the same time. She believes life is an ongoing process and that failure is just as important as success. Her chief interests include sewing, piano, writing, listening to music, cats and dogs, talking to people, and running her shop.

Ugh! Double ugh! Who is she kidding?? 16 Oct. 2007
By Sharon L. Richards - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't bother...fortunately I received this book at no cost. Unfortunatley I opened it up and started to read it! It was truly amazing in it's preposterous notions and when I read that Liverpool was SOUTH(!) of LONDON! That's when I threw it down and said "Enough!" I can't even give this book one star but the review system wouldn't let me post without doing it. Can you give negative stars?? -4 stars...

Oh, gimme a break...... 15 Oct. 2007
By HMVNipper - Published on
Format: Paperback
Please. This supposed "true story" is nothing but an overly-ambitious fantasy of a fan fiction -- and it's not even original. I run a fan fiction webzine, and trust me when I say that every bit of this totally dreadful "book" (I use the term loosely) is not only incoherent, but a good bit of it seems an awful lot like it was lifted directly from many of the stories I've published on my website. Neither I nor any of those authors have ever said they were anything but fiction, though! It seems to me that Ms. Waters has a very active imagination and a huge problem separating fact from fantasy. Not worth the paper it's printed on unless you want some very expensive toilet roll...unfortunately, this drives home the potential problems with self-publishing without oversight by an editor!

Unclear about this book 13 Jun. 2006
By Nikki - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read this book twice now and it really sounds like a made up story. Author says "based on a true story" but who's? Certain things don't make sense. The biggest thing is that how a grown adult would want to have anything to do with a child, especially have an affair. Almost sounds like she's trying to down play John at the same time trying not to discredit him. There are a few books out there about John that claim the same stuff this book does. Did she have a crush on John Lennon when she was young. Later on in life picked up a book, and the book became her new fantasy. Some time later the fantasy became her life. So lets go write a book using some one elses story. Surprised she hasn't been sued by the family yet. I'm done.

Fan Fiction 23 Feb. 2006
By Beatlefan - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is fan fiction, other than what the title and ads attest to. This becomes embarrasingly evident within the first few pages. Written as a novel,it is a lightweight depiction of Beatle John Lennon as experienced through a child's eyes who grows to love him as a young teen. He later falls in love with her (despite the age difference and the true loves in his life, which he brings to meet her as well.) But the devoted teen cannot really come through for him when he needs her the most. Loosely based on Lennon's life through the years, until his murder in 1980, the author attests to this fictional account at the end of the forward, as a therapeutic means of grieving his death. The fictional basis should be clearly stated in the title.

Totally untrue 1 Mar. 2006
By son of sam - Published on
Format: Paperback
I take business trips to Pensacola all the time. Just happened to go in the hardware store the author worked at. She told me all about the meetings with John and how she can't remember if they were true or not. It was kinda funny how none of her family, who work there have, never seen John at the old surf shop except for her. Then went on about being a manic depressive and Being on heavy medications to treat the condition. Basicly by how she talked and the uncertainity of the events that took place can only lead to one thing and that is in one of her mental states she had a dream that became reality.
