From nervously auditioning for the X Factor and meeting each other for the first time, to filming their hit movie This Is Us and releasing their bestselling third album, Midnight Memories, it really has been an incredible journey. For the first time, the boys’ loyal fans will be given an unprecedented insight into all of it, from their humble beginnings and lives before the X Factor, to recording their first single to touring the world...

Who We Are is the official autobiography for One Direction. Within these 354 pages, fans will discover how Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis have really felt over the last four years as well as their plans and ambitions for the future.

You'll learn what it has been like for them? What did they really think of each other when they first met? What inspires their song-writing? And how they handle life on the road and long breaks away from those they care about and love?

This is a book primarily aimed at the younger reader, and with that in mind the design of the book aims to keep their minds focused on the page. There are plenty of images to break up the text, which itself flows easily from topic to topic. The book is illustrated by Calvin Aurand's wonderful photography.

The book also contains an interesting surprise. Underneath the removable jacket is a bright orange cover that has a printed autographed front - which makes it a talking point for young fans.

For fans of the group, this is an essential purchase. You'll learn just about everything you'll ever need to about your favourite boy band.
