Debbie Harry Sings in French by Meagan Brothers

This is just a sweet little coming of age story. I kind of don’t want to tell you what it’s about, because watching the main character figure out what he’s about is the whole point of the book, the actual plot beyond just a kid growing up.

What it captures perfectly is the teenage way that a band can be so fucking important to you, where it’s your whole life, everything you’re hanging onto. In this book it’s about Blondie, but I remember being in highschool and caring sooooooo much about Atlas Sound, or the Manic Street Preachers, where I’d be lost without something good to listen to. Super enjoyable, a quick read, a perfect summer book.
