I must be going soft in my old age, but I really liked this book. I first read it when it was a blog serial, and sad bastard that I am each new episode quickly became the highlight of my week. Now it’s out in paperback, and I’m looking forward to reading it again all in one go.
Don’t let the romance tag put you off. While it probably is a romance at heart, it never gets too soppy and there’s plenty of other stuff going on to keep the interest. It’s set in present day Canada and centres around a young girl’s entrance into the local punk scene. Her mother’s a bit of a nut-job, so she keeps it all secret from her as long as she can. But when the mother finds out she’s been staying overnight at a squat full of punks it all comes out in the open.
Good book, well written.
