This is a tough but rewarding read. It’s the story of a newly single mother who was raising her two young daughters in a punk house then suddenly relocates to her aunt’s house in the suburbs. What we get is a gripping tale of poverty, classism, expectations forced by others, and struggling to get by. Not only does it tackle the age-old question of, “What happens to punks when they grow older?” it gives us answers that are hard to hear and thoroughly expected. I recommend this highly if you can track down a copy. Author Sarah B. has a way of being blunt that sticks with, just like the best punk songs. –Bryan Static (Punch Drunk Press, 816 N Main #200, Lansing, KS 66043, pioneerspress.com)
