    1. Brooke Carter is the author of three young adult novels ANOTHER MISERABLE LOVE SONG 2016 , LEARNING SEVENTEEN January 16, 2018 , and LUCKY BREAK Fall 2018 , all from Orca Book Publishers Her poetry chapbook, POCO LOCO, was released in 2016 though Anstruther Press.

    2. Kallie is having a tough time when her beloved dad dies before her 18th birthday. She finds solace in music and when a punk band asks her to sing with them, this may be exactly what she needs to start pulling her life back together.Nice inclusion of transgender character. Some teen drinking and sexual situations.A good hi-lo tending a bit more to high school age.

    5. Kill your gaaaaaysStab your queeeeeersIs this a hi-lo thing or is Canada just big on murdering all the quiltbaggers?!?Too bad; this book has serious potential to be one of my favorite hi-los even though the musical references ended far, far too soon. You know there are still punk goddesses out there, right?
