This is The Devil Wears Prada for the music TV industry. Being an intern has never been more popular or competitive, and combined with the appeal of a behind-the-scenes view of the music TV industry, this should be the must-read fiction title for teens and undergraduates.

The Intern by Dillon Khan
'As I stood soaking it all in, my nerves were momentarily replaced by a rush of excitement: I was at the heartbeat of music.'
Jay Merchant has landed an internship for the best job in music television. He has access-all-areas to the biggest VIP parties and the hottest celebrities all over the world. The velvet rope has been lifted - now he's got to capture it on camera. But behind the scenes, Jay is thrown into a life of early starts, late nights, blood, sweat and tears. He has six months to turn his intern dream into a real job - but at what price? It's time for Jay to face the music...
'A great insight into how hard it is to be an intern at a music television company' - Trevor Nelson, BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra
'A brilliant insight into a world I know all too well. A real page-turner' - Reggie Yates, BBC Radio 1
'A revealing and engaging account of taking those first steps into music television. Jay could be any number of people I have worked with. The Devil Wears Prada meets Entourage' - Laura Whitmore, MTV
'An amazing read. The Intern was so reminiscent of our earlier years trying to make our way in the TV industry. It's a brilliantly told story about getting ahead in the media world and would serve anyone aspiring to a career in this field. Dear intern, Rickie and Melvin salute you ' - Rickie H-Williams & Melvin Odoom, Kiss FM and T4
'A blast from the past. Takes me back to the good old days' - Lisa Snowdon, Capital FM
'This serves a brilliant reminder to my own turbulent, terrifying, exciting, overworked and underpaid beginnings as an intern. But whether you're in the industry, want to be, or just fancy a nose into the life and times, this is a page-turner of epic proportions. A fascinating read that stirs sonic memories of the early 00s, The Intern is a sharp insight into the world of work experience' - Hattie Collins, RWD magazine
'The topic of internships is so current and Dillon has brilliantly captured the voice of a generation. I myself started out as intern, it's the best way to get your foot in the door and a really great way to learn how to make an awesome cup of tea!' - June Sarpong
'The Intern was like a time machine for me. The way Dillon has brought that era back to life and in doing so reminded me of what it was like to be an outsider looking in, hoping to hustle my way to the centre of the game is amazing. After reading it I wish I'd partied even more.' - Nihal, BBC Radio 1
