Boiled Cat

Rate this book
Sixteen year old Thrash, the rowdy lead singer of the punk band, Boiled Cat, is aware that seeing skulls in the faces of his band mates is probably not a good sign. However, it’s the least of his worries. While Thrash struts for screaming crowds, blistering music pumping, he’s being stalked. Thrash’s abusive uncle is determined to destroy the band and Thrash along with it. And that’s not all, Thrash’s best friend is experimenting with drugs, and the high-spirited, triple pierced, female drummer for Tongue the Frog, is exposing emotions Thrash would prefer to keep buried. Working through it all is no easy task for someone whose first instinct is to run. But to keep the only family he’s ever wanted, he’ll have to stay and fight!

Kim Firmston has captured the gritty reality of what it's like to tour in a busy rock band, and the varied relationships, challenges and sometimes harrowing experiences of one young man's life.I urge every person who dreams of the glamour of the rock star life to read this enlightening novel!
