Rock memoirs are usually salacious and scandalous, or at least try desperately to be so. Carrie Brownstein's isn't. It is wise and generous. She looks at her history in music and with Sleater-Kinney with a mature sense of awareness and the wit made evident in her work writing and starring in Portlandia. Any fan of any era of her career will like this book, but so will anyone fascinated by the music in the Northwest. [Kenny]

This book stars Melissa. She was called George for a while because people didn't see her as who she truly is and she is Melissa. This book is the perfect book to introduce older kids, teens, and even adults to transgender experiences, issues, and celebrations. It is compassionate and sweet and funny when it needs to be. I learned a lot from this book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loved Wonder. [Kenny!]

This book is a miracle. Following four friends throughout their entire lives, with a deep generosity and kindness, with fire and brutality. I have never felt this connected to characters in a novel, fascinated by their fierce loyalty and their disastrous humanity. I wanted to know them, I do know them. It tore me apart, this book, and I let it. It was 700 pages and I read it twice anyway. I wanted it to be longer. It doesn't surprise me that it has been nominated for nearly every single literary prize in 2015. It is a masterpiece. [Kenny!]
