thought, "I wish this book didn't have to end. I wish there was another one right
after it (I've already read "Pipe Bomb For The Soul",) and then it occurred to me
that my sentiments are really about the highest honor I give to books I love.
If you love music, read this book. If you love human beings, read this book.
It's just, THE BEST. Thank you, Alicia, for writing your life. Please, please,
PLEASE KEEP WRITING!!!!!
I would recommend this book simply because Alice Bag has a remarkable voice, there is a lot of Chicano history (socially) in her neighborhood, school, and family. Her stories are sad, moving, funny, and very interesting. It's a book for music lovers and much much more. Alice was right in the center of LA punk along with X, Weirdos, Germs, Black Randy, etc. She is a true source of inspiration. Even if one is not simply interested in punk history, this book is great personally-charged storytelling. Highly recommended. Violence Girl: East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, a Chicana Punk Story
