Seventeen-year-old Cat is living every teenager's dream - she has her own apartment on the Lower East Side and at night she's club kid royalty, guarding the velvet rope at some of the hottest clubs in the city. Her days are something else entirely. Having spent years enduring her mother's emotional and physical abuse, and abandoned by her father, Cat is terrified and alone. But when someone comes along who makes her want to truly live, she'll need to summon the courage to confront her demons.

Banash captures the pulsing atmospherics of the '80s club scene in minute and perfect detail, juxtaposing her descriptions of the outlandish fashions and stylized personalities against evocative, lyrical metaphors of Cat's brittle inner life. The effect is emotionally lashing; readers can't miss the note of desperation, sadness, and insecurity that threads through and in fact drives the relentless party scene for all the players, or that Cat's only moments of happiness come when she's high. The steadying presences of Sara and a new boy bring Cat back from the edge to end her story with a note of hope; give this to fans of Francesca Lia Block to see what Weetzie might have looked like on the East Coast.BCCB --VariousAbout the Author:
