When I was Marlie's (the lead character) age in 1991 (16), I was already well-embroiled in the worlds of politics, religion, feminism, substances, sexuality and travel, and had been already for several years. Jennifer Whiteford's protagonist is a tiny bit slower on the uptake -- she doesn't start off political or particularly informed -- but she loves music, women and knows there's something better in life for her. I suppose a lot of people are like this -- how many kids become politically aware in college??? -- and rather than getting me down, it made me want to recommend this little book to just about every young woman I know.

As I followed Marlie's character through her paths of discovery, I remembered that a lot of people that age probably could identify with Marlie's quest to find herself, and that made her story ever more compelling. Not everyone gets a political awakening at a very young age -- many aren't ready to be thrust into the adult world so soon -- and Marlie's gradual awakening is delightful, historical, hysterical, and it will get fans of grrrl music and the Seattle scene CRANKING UP THE MUSIC!!!!!

Full of delicious riot grrrl moments and a sweet grrrl-loving-grrrl awakening, Jennifer Whiteford's first novel is well worth the read.

This book was a really fast read and very relate able. I enjoyed it very much and really felt connected to the main character. Written in diary form by a young teenage girl over a two year span, it shows her growing up and struggling with individuality, sexual orientation, and starting a band.
