I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, Stephanie Keuhnert

In the same vein as Irvine Welsh, Roddy Doyle and Nick Hornby, Stephanie has a voice that MUST be heard. Her debut novel exudes with sex, drugs and of course, the iconic rock and roll. But that's not all this story is about. In more ways than one, this story is about family, having it, not having and trying like hell to find it. I've been really struggling to write a review that really explains the awesomeness that is "I wanna be your Joey Ramone". So I wanna hear what YOU guys thought of this book. I absolutely adored it. The voice and tone of the book is exactly what I needed to get out of my rut. Emily Black is not your typical teenage girl, she's all about the music and getting out of her small little town in Wisconsin. By the age of 15 she's already a well-known customer of The River's Edge. A local hot spot for local and up and coming punk bands. What grabbed me about this story was the desperation in Emily's character at times. Growing up thinking that her mother left to follow the music. Emily longs for that. She's brought up listening to music and longing for following it. Constantly seeking out a normal family when she doesn't realize that she's in a normal family. I really cannot do justice to this book, and want to hear what you thought of it. Please share...

  4. I really enjoyed this book, and lovers of books, especially YA, should run out and get this ASAP! I read it awhile ago, and I was like wow I need to let this sink in before I write a review. I think it's still sinking in. Really spectacular, plus Stephanie is a rocking chick! :)
