FC: One Direction | Life as One Direction
1: Liam Payne | Niall Horan | Zayn Malik | Louis Tomlinson | Harry Styles
3: One Direction is a boy band from the UK. Four of the boys are from Great Britain and one is from Ireland. One Direction was formed on July 23, 2010 at 8:22 pm, while they were on the UK X Factor. They then came in 3rd on the TV show and signed a record deal with Syco Record.
5: When Liam James Payne was born on August 29, 1993, he was effectively dead! He only had one working kidney. Age zero to four he practically lived at the hospital. He has to be careful what he eats or drinks and keep himself as healthy as possible! Liam once like a girl and he asked her out 22 times! When she finally said yes, she broke up with him the next day. I bet she regrets that decision! When he was 14, Liam auditioned for the X Factor the first time. He made it all the way to judges house. Simon Cowell then sent him home and told him to come back in two years. Good thing he listened or One Direction maybe would have never existed!
7: Harry Edward Styles was born on February 4, 1994. He was in school plays from a pretty young age. He played Buzz Lightyear in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He also did this play called Barney; he played the lead! He loved singing from and early age. At the end of year Eight his friends started a band and they needed a singer. Before Harry joined he had only ever sung in the shower! This band was named White Eskimo and they played at there school's talent show! White Eskimo Won! In 2010 he auditioned for the X Factor, singing the song Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder.
9: Niall James Horan was born on September 13, 1993. He grew up in the small town of Mullingar in the midlands of Ireland. He has loved singing from an early age. One time when he was in the car with his aunt; he was singing Garth Brooks in the Back seat and his aunt thought the radio was on! He started playing the guitar when he was 12. He had always wanted to give the X Factor a go and I'm sure glad he did.
11: Louis William Tomlinson was born on December 24, 1991. He had always been a very chatty person. When he was little he like to talk to anyone they met on the street. When he was younger he was an extra on TV shows such as Fat Friends, If I Had You, and Waterloo Road. When Louis was in secondary school he landed the lead role in the musical Grease. In 2009, he applied for the X Factor but didn't get through the first round. The rest of that year he had his heart set on auditioning again. Looks like all that hard work paid off!
13: Zayn Jawaad Malik was born on January 12, 1993. He has a very large family! His dad has 7 siblings, so he has over 20 cousins on that side alone! He absolutely loved being on the stage! He joined a choir because his music teacher asked him to. That was when he got his real start at singing. He first filled out an application form for the X Factor when he was 15, but then chickened out. He did the same when he was 16! But when he was 17 he was finally brave enough to audition. Good thing he toughened up!
15: The best part of the book was that it was written by them! It was nice to here their own side of the story from their own point of view!
17: My least favorite part of the book was that they all went through the X Factor together, so when they started talking about the X Factor in their solo chapters the story was repeated five times!
