An intergalactic pop idol dies in a tragic murder. But one of his most devoted fans isn’t ready to say goodbye. Twana Burch, super-fan, waits outside a concert venue for a glimpse of Bieber, the object of her obsession. Her whole world changes when his limo explodes. In the blast, she catches a souvenir, his finger. In the midst of recent controversy surrounding illegal cloning, Twana concocts a plan to resurrect her pop idol and rescue his career by booking him at the biggest concert event in the known universe: The Pan-Galactic Prom Show. Meanwhile… The warrior crew of a dying race of alien creatures sets out into space in a search for help to rescue their war-tattered planet. Their tools: entertainment and propaganda. Their target: The Pan-Galactic Prom Show.
My Review: This book is hilarious! The two stories progress to a climax until you can’t stop until you reach the end. A master of suspense and humor, this book has everything from familial love to genocidal war. It packages deep and touching humanity in media hype and snickers. A cross between Spinal Tap and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I had to get book 2 before I finished book 1, because I couldn’t wait! It’s a good thing they are both out, or I would have been angry.
As a second note, I listened to this as an audiobook. The author is an amazing reader! His voicing talent is exceptional. I honestly don’t know why he isn’t making his whole living reading audiobooks. It is among the best audiobook presentations I’ve ever heard.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Craig Nybo on panels, in games, in bands, and on writing projects. He’s one of the most professional musicians and artists I’ve ever met. Women want him and I want to be him! That’s not an exaggeration. His creative studio is flippin’ amazing! If you’ve never had the chance to read Nybo’s work, Bieber’s Finger is a great book to start with.
