Product description


Kinsella skilfully blends convincing depictions of both the punk scene and the racist underground with the hoary trope of a band of kids setting out to solve a mystery … a suspenseful page-turner that also gives considerable food for thought. (Quill & Quire)

Tension starts high and stays there in this unflinching page-turner, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the early punk scene and a moving testament to the power of friendship. (Publishers Weekly)

A compelling and jagged read. (School Library Journal)

Unlike anything he has written before. (Calgary Herald)

Raw and gritty and soaked in the passion for personal freedom, disdain for authority, and commitment to indie music (

Of interest to anyone interested in punk culture — not just the music, but the fanzines, art and writing of the period. (Toronto Star)

Kinsella’s book explodes off the page from the start...a dark and engrossing tale of punk-rock heroes fighting for justice. (Booklist)

Absorbing, jarring and raw. (Globe and Mail)

excellent (Edmonton Journal)

Kinsella’s book explodes off the page from the start … A dark and engrossing tale of punk-rock heroes fighting for justice. (Booklist (U.S.))
