    1. A very touching and heartfelt tale of the highs and lows of adolescence in the southern California punk scene circa 1990. It has some funny moments, but much like life at that age there's a lot more drama and heartbreak. I literally couldn't put this book down until I finished it, and the story goes on just long enough until it ends perfectly (with a little tip of the hat to Quadrophenia of course).

    3. Meh. But then, it wasn't written for me. I spent a lot of time being annoyed by Mason's unexamined straight-boy hangups. Because man, there's nothing that makes me sympathize with a character like (view spoiler)[cave-man jealousy over a girl who "belongs" to him. Or threatening his mother with disturbingly sexual violence (hide spoiler)]. You know. The closest Mason ever came to forging his own version of masculinity was when (view spoiler)[he refrained from beating up a skater with an actual, l [...]

    4. The book began a bit slow, but when it picked up it picked up fast. "Cut My Hair" caught my attention in an old comic shop in NYC back in '07. I bought it on sight - the Who reference spoke to me - then tried to read it once twice. I think I realised at the time it was what I needed. I wish I had finished it then.There's something to be said about a book that can cut straight through to the soul of what punk is. The discussion with Lenny 3/4ths of the way through does it exceptionally well. Punk [...]

    5. I missed the mod era. I missed the punk era. I missed any really notable era in music culture. This book filled the gaps- a punk coming-of-age fable indebted heavily to "Quadrophenia" and "The Catcher in the Rye" while being a response as much as a tribute to either of them. Jamie Rich's writing has that Alison Bechdelian quality of being not quite fiction and not quite nonfiction- it's a semiautobiographical novel, but you never get the sense that it's entirely novel or entirely not. Much like [...]

    6. Picked this up at the Bethesda Small Press Expo, and really enjoyed it. Nothing spectacular, but a unique style with references to music and culture that I could appreciate and relate to.Many of these were characters I am surrounded by and it was fun to see them in print. Watching the main character grow up and into himself was heartening, if painful. The ending was wretchedly cheesy though, I'd almost suggest not bothering with the last chapter, but I suspect most people will want the resolutio [...]

    7. It tried way too hard to be edgy and ended up being mostly unpleasant. There were a few decent sections, but they were few and far between. The most intriguing relationship, the one between Mason and Tristan, really wasn't explored beyond a surface level. The format, with cartoonists from Oni Press illustrating the story, was interesting and what was what drew me in in the first place.

    8. Took my a while to get hooked on it, but it was well worth it! A romantic coming of age story set amongst violence and marginalisation. So, yeah, it was a little too violent for me at times. The ending is very ambiguous and open ended, so maybe I will have to read it again.

    9. I really enjoyed Rich's writing style, some cool literary passages, especially the last line. Unpredictable coming of age story played against a changing music scene. Enjoyable, check it out for something different.

    10. There was nothing wrong with it, I just didn't like the story much. The writing was good, it just wasn't my thing I guess. I don't think I'm really the target audience though.

    11. I'm not a huge re-reader, but this is my thrid time through this book. I guess I'm a sucker for teenage angst, underground punk, and a whole lotta the Smiths.
