Editorial Reviews

Review

"The best thing about A Punk Rock Love Song is the way that author C.I. DeMann constructs his characters. They're convincing and endearing because they're ALL insecure and learning how to deal. Complex things are happening. Everyone has troubles." - The Pankhearst Review

About the Author

C.I. DeMann isn't actually a person. He's a robot, sent from the future to write fiction. His stories are designed to prevent a future war between humans and robots. Wait. No. Reverse that. His stories are designed to CAUSE a future war between... Wait, no that's wrong, too. Dammit. This time travel stuff can get confusing. Give me a second. Okay, I think I've got it. His stories are about unicorns.

Anyone looking for a book that will make them laugh, smile, cry or cringe, this is it.
Travis McGuire
The issues the main character, Maggie, face seem very real and very relatable, the plot moves along nicely without lagging, and the characters are developed well.
Dave Garlock
I recommend this book and am very much hoping the author produces the next installment in Maggie Blackman’s story.

Maggie Blackman is sixteen, six feet tall, and considering auditioning for a band even though she’s never played an instrument. She’s also grieving her mother’s death, coping with a father whose grief eclipses his capacity to parent, very much crushing on a boy named Damien Shaw, and dealing with shifting friendship alliances. This well-paced story unfolds from Maggie’s point of view and DeMann captures Maggie’s inner dialogue with a fine ear for the awkwardness, humor and longing that attend the teenage years. There are terrific, cringe-worthy moments that bring back all the angst of 16, as well as incredibly touching moments of heartbreak and maturity. The novel is peopled with complex, realistic characters – we care about and root for Maggie and her father, as well as the friendships that develop through the story. Maggie’s love interest is a mensch, a character I’d love to know in real life. It’s a pleasure to read about a teenage boy who is defined as much by his integrity and compassion as his looks and possible kissability. I recommend this book and am very much hoping the author produces the next installment in Maggie Blackman’s story.

This book is phenomenal. I absolutely could not put it down. I really appreciated the well-written, dynamic characters in this book and the real-world, honest issues they faced. (Sparkly vampires need not apply...) Even though I am considerably older than the YA demographic that will no doubt love this book, I enjoyed the way the story brought back all those memories of first love, trying to fit in, and the importance of music as a soundtrack to a teenage life. Can't wait to see what else C.I. DeMann has up his sleeve!

I enjoyed the simplicity of this story; a high school girl loses her mom, her dad's drinking a lot and she wants to play in a band. Though the plot was simple, the topics were deep, thought-provoking and emotional. A Punk Rock Love Song plays to anyone who's ever felt like they don't belong, anyone that has lost a loved one and anyone that is or has ever been at a pivotal point in their life when everything is confusing and beautiful all at once.

C.I.'s use of language is excellent, the story flows and goes by at a quick pace and remains intriguing all the way through. Anyone looking for a book that will make them laugh, smile, cry or cringe, this is it. It might even make you want to break out that old bass or guitar and join a band.

I really enjoyed this book and once I started reading I was sucked into Maggie's world. And I loved it. Even though it is a YA novel I think it can really be enjoyed by anyone. Several levels and subplots and a few twists keep you turning the page. I reccomend it for sure!
