"Castellucci mixes details of the L.A. punk scene with memorable characters and witty dialogue. . . . Consider this pure Nirvana." and#8212; BOOKLIST Exiled from Canada to Los Angeles, Katy can't believe she is spending the summer with her father—punk name: the Rat—a recovered addict and drummer for the band Suck. Even though Katy feels abandoned by her mom, even though the Rat's place is a mess and he's not like anything she'd call a father, Kathy won't make a fuss. After all, she is a girl who is quiet and polite, a girl who smiles, a girl who is, well, beige. Or is she? From the author of BOY PROOF and THE QUEEN OF COOL comes an edgy L.A. novel full of humor, heart, and music.

Loved it, I realized just how much a part of my life music is, and was shocked at the way the main character was disconnected from music, while I connected with her father and friend Lake. LOVE IT MUST READ FOR MUSIC FANS and obviously anyone else who wants a good YA novel. Finished it in one day, in one day, it brought me closer to music.
