Waiting On Wednesday - So Punk Rock

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. Head over to check it out and play along.

So Punk Rock (and Other Ways to Disappoint Your Mother) by Micol Ostow and David Ostow

Publication Date: July 1, 2009

Summary: Despite his dreams of hipster rock glory, Ari Abramson's first-ever band, the Tribe, is more white bread than indie-cred. Comprised of four suburban teens from a wealthy Jewish day school, their Mötley Crüe is about as hardcore as SAT prep and scripture studies.

But after a one-song gig at a friend's Bar Mitzvah—a ska cover of Hava Nagila—the Tribe's popularity erupts overnight. Now, Ari is forced to navigate a minefield of inflated egos, overbearing parents, misplaced romance, and the shallowness of indie-rock elitism. It's a hard lesson in the complex art of playing it cool.

Loaded with sarcasm and delicious pop culture condescension (not to mention David Ostow's too-cool-for-school cartooning work), So Punk Rock is the E! Behind the Music story of an epic Jewish band that never was. If it got any more kosher, it'd be totally traif.

Why I want it:

Micol Ostow rocks and I love books about music. Plus the cover makes me giggle.

OMG, thanks for the love! I'm so excited to hear that you guys are looking forward to the book.
FYI, I'm in the process of setting up an SPR page through my website where you'll be able to read excerpts, see sample illustrations, follow the characters on Myspace and Twitter, and etc., etc., etc. Stay tuned!
