With The Boy Band Con documentary on YouTube and the current or upcoming tours of New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, the Jonas Brothers and likely others, one thing is clear: boy bands aren’t just for the ’80s, ’90s, or even ’00s. They are here to stay. So while you wait for a concert to reach your city, sit back with one of these books for readers who love boy bands.
