I'm willing to bet I've read this book every year since it came out in 2004. I absolutely love it. The way it's written is absolutely flawless, and I don't say this to get your hopes up. I don't want to say the writing is beautiful because it's not necessarily, not in every line. It's just… exactly right. It's not too flowery or too matter-of-fact. She's a freelance journalist, and her writing shows this in the best way.The book revolves around Stapinski's time as a drummer in an indie band, delving back into her childhood musical beginnings as well as the friendships and relationships she's in at the time. It gets very personal as she openly shares troubles she has in her band as well as in her marriage. For knowing exactly what happens, the book still punches me in the gut at the crucial moments, then soothes me over with the resolution. Absolutely amazing, recommend to everyone.
