Publisher's Summary

Living in the indie band capital of Athens, Georgia, Trisha decides to start her own punk band. Four young women are brought together, and The Forty Watt Flowers are formed.
Rosemarie, on keyboards, has a sex drive as fierce as a tornado. Aline, the singer, is a hermit, scratching out poems in her antebellum mansion. Juanita, on drums, has a poison tongue that's a little too quick on the draw. Toni, on guitar, made the mistake of heading south to come out of the closet.
In addition to managing her crew of misfits, Trisha struggles to figure out the chaos of her own life. Her relationship with Brent is caught in the roller coaster of his moods. She lost touch with her parents two years ago (and they probably still blame her for what happened to her sister).
The Forty Watt Flowers is a novel that gets you tapping your toes. It's what you create as you wrestle your demons, with the hottest, most frightening music you know.

A Band of Eclectic Characters!

Having lived in Georgia for the last 20+ years, it was very fun to read/listen to a story that was took place in Athens, GA. I was given the Audible version of this book in exchange for an honest review. The author was the narrator and she did a good job bringing the various personalities to life.

The book was a little hard for me to get into initially, but I’d say after the first 20% it had me hooked! The characters were all so well developed I felt like I really knew them by the end. It was interesting to learn about the real challenges of starting up a band and keeping everyone on the same page.

All in all this was a very enjoyable book which I am so glad I had the opportunity to read (listen).
