Honestly, I don't think I can even tell you all the reasons why I loved this book. It's just one of those that suck you and won't let you go, even after it's done.
But here's my spill....

The fact that I'm a complete music freak is what first perked my interest in this book. Plus take a look at the cover! Once I started reading it, I wasn't able to put it down. Stephanie Kuehnert knows good music and it shows.

This isn't a simple read. There's something very real and raw about it. Emily Black is a girl with one dream. Scratch that - she's got two dreams. She's going to get out of the small town of Carlisle. And she's going to do it by being a rock star.

I loved Emily instantly. She's edgy as hell, in your face, and damn do I wish I had the balls she had. There were so many things that I could identify with in this book. Espeically when it came to Emily and her best friend Regan. So many moments where I stopped, almost baffled and eventually called up my best friend and rambled some passages out because it sounded like us. (Even weirder my goddaughter name is Regean).

Even the issues that Emily goes through that I couldn't identify with - I felt them. There were moments I was laughing, got teary eyed, and sometimes even wanted to shake the crap out Emily for some choices she made. But hey, that's what a good book does to you, right?
There is more than one side to this story. It's not just about Emily wanting to be a rock star for the pure passion of music, but to find her mother. Find out what was so speical about it that made her leave without saying goodbye. While you read, you get to see what her mother had went through since the day she left that small town. And just like Emily, you feel her pain as well.
One thing I really loved about this book was the dream. Sure I wanted to be a rock star when I was like five, listening to my own dad's records and pretending to play the guitar with a duster. But in this story you see the dream that Emily, Regan, and drummer boy Tom create with their band She Laughs. Once you get sucked into this world of punk rock and teenage angst and the need for closure, I promsie you, you won't be dissapointed.

WOW. This one left a mark on my heart.

Emily's story is tough one to read. While I couldn't exactly identify with her, Emily is the girl that everyone in my small town high school thought I was. (Imagine everyone's surprise when they found me on Facebook 7,300 days after graduation and realized how BORING I am. Heh.) That fact alone made me form a connection with our punk rock heroine that made this an incredible reading experience for me.

This book has what I love second most in a story (kissing always comes first (and this book has that, too, BTW (I'm done nesting parenthesis's inside parenthesis's now))): imperfect characters. We have characters making bad decisions and THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES. No poo-pooing around tough subjects and minimizing their effects. Be prepared to watch these characters face sexual assault, drug addiction & other stuff I can't mention because it's spoilery-ish. The life of a punk rocker ain't always glamorous.

There is no doubt that music is an important part of who Stephanie Kuehnert is. There were a number of times where I wondered if parts of the story were autobiographical because it comes across SO STRONG across the pages.

Also, I would be doing this review an injustice without mentioning the fact that I love Emily's dad, Michael Black. YAY for YA books that portray present parents! Or parent in this case. *wipes away tear* Watching Emily search for her mother is such a great way for the reader to see her learn more about the woman that she idolizes. There are dual points of view so we learn a majority of Louisa's, Emily's mother, story in a third person point of view story line.

Recommended for readers that love to read a heavy book infused with music that tells it like it is. You'll be rewarded with a reading experience that will stick with you for a good, long while when you pick up this gem by Stephanie Kuehnert.

Love the premise of this story--especially since I came of age during the '90s much as the protagonist did. I enjoyed the book but my complaints are many: 1) The story is crammed with so much plot development it leaves hardly any room for the characters to breathe and grow realistically. The author zooms through so many plot points (lots of telling instead of showing) that it detracts from the overall story and character development (Devoting just a scant few pages to a drug/alcohol problem? Really?). 2) There are a few too many MTV-camera-ready moments (which makes sense given that MTV is the publisher here), a few too many rock star cliches, etc.
Still, a quick enjoyable read--some nice dark touches. I'll definitely pick up Kuehnert's other book.

Being a serious Ramones fan, I was curious about a book which used Joey's name in its title. This book has nothing to do with Joey Ramone. It was chosen to get attention, in my opinion. It's your basic girl wants to find mother who "ran away from home" when girl was very young to pursue a "punk rock girl" lifestyle. It's a kind of coming of age book. Perhaps teenagers will like this book. The only relation to the Ramones that this book has is that the story is set against a background during the time when old school punk was new and developing. If you are looking for a book about the Ramones, there are some real ones such as Monte Melnick's On the Road with the Ramones or Everett True's book called Ramones. The story is written in a "choppy" form, the words don't flow. Was that supposed to be punk? Anyway, it's not a bad book, but using the Ramones to try to capture an audience was wrong and misleading.
