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.

Worth a listen to for people interested in music

I thought this was an interesting book about a group of girls starting their own band in a small town. I listened to the audio version, and the author did a good job of narrating, providing many different voices to the characters. I think this book would be particularly interesting to people who are starting their own bands, or who are just interested in music, especially of the 1990's. I was a teenager in the 1990's and knew all the music references that were made, which made it interesting. This book shows a lot about the dynamics of people in a band, troubles they may have working together, and having a life outside of a band. Overall, an interesting read. I probably wouldn't read it a second time, but I'm glad I read it once.
