Hairstyles of the Damned

Hairstyles of the Damned

by Joe Meno

An honest and riveting depiction of growing up punk on Chicago’s south side. It is a novel about wanting to belong, but never quite belonging, that follows the riotous exploits of Brian, a high school burnout, and his best friend, Gretchen, a punk rock girl fond of brawling. Based on the actual events surrounding a Chicago high school’s segregated prom, this work of fiction unflinchingly pursues the truth in discovering what it means to be your own person.

Similar to "perks of being a wallflower", but about a hundred times better! Possibly the best fiction book I have ever read.

An amazing book that is easily passed around and enjoyed by all. No one could put it down.

Entertaining and trashy pop culture binge.
