When Jill saw the CD, she was astonished.

Based on a real story.

Did Jill have a scrund? If so, about CDs in general? about this particular CD?

Was it a music CD? a CD ROM?

Did she see the CD case? the CD itself?

Was there anything relevant written on the CD? If so, printed? handwritten?

Is it a CD by just one artist? a band? a compilation?

Is it an album? a single?

Is the artist's name relevant? The album's title?

Is it a CD by just one artist? a band? a compilation? See below

Is it an album? a single? See below

Is the artist's name relevant? The only important thing about it is that it's printed on the cover.
The album's title? No

Just to avoid that you focus on the artist too much: It really was an album of a boygroup, but it could work with any artist with a certain trait that it very relevant here and it can work with both albums and singles (and possibly with compilations as well, although that might not have made such an impression on Jill).

Was there a picture of the band on the cover? Relevant?

Did she see the front cover? Back cover?

Is Jill's age relevant?

Balin

Doriana

Was there a picture of the band on the cover? Yes
Relevant? The band name would have sufficed, but the picture certainly helped Jill's reaction

Did she see the front cover? Yes
Back cover? Irr

Is Jill's age relevant? Yesish. Let's say she's around ten or maybe somewhat younger.

RECAT --- erm, RECAP:

Meow... ^^

When 10-year old Jill saw an album of a band in a store, she realized that she had a scrund about the band and also of bands/artists with a certain characteristic in general. The names of the band and the album are irrelevant and so are the number and appearance of the band members.

HINT: Where had Jill come across the band before?

from the US?

A recap-let:

I had seen a boygroup on a TV show and was surprised to see a CD of them a couple of days later.

Hint:

What kind of show was it and what was the boygroup's role in it?

***** SPOILER *****

At age 10, Jill (aka yours truly) saw a boygroup that she had never heard of before play themselves in a soap opera (for those who want to know, it was the German-Dutch group Caught In The Act in the German series Gute Zeiten Schlechte Zeiten). Not being really aware of the music scene, Jill thought that the band didn't exist for real but consisted of actors only and was surprised when she eventually saw an album of them in a store, making her realize that they actually were a real group (and that she had the scrund of everybody playing a role in a TV show being an actor and existing only within the show universe).
