Plastic Fantastic is a light and frothy story that will while away one afternoon of a teenager’s life, just as it revolves around one afternoon in 15-year-old Dominic’s life. Dominic is obsessed with a pop group called Plastic so when he gets stuck in a lift for a whole afternoon with Plastic’s lead singer, Lisa Voyd, he thinks he’s gone to heaven. Through the conversations he has with her he realises though that she is not the person he thinks he knows through music magazines and interviews and she shows him that his unhealthy obsession is getting in the way of falling in love with his best friend. There are some funny moments as we learn about Dominic’s family and friends but the characterisation doesn’t linger. There may be some new thoughts about the ephemeral nature of fame and fandom for younger teenagers but most of the plot and the eventual ending are all very predictable.
