Exiled from Canada to Los Angeles, Katy can't believe she is spending the summer with her father - punk name: the Rat - a recovered addict and drummer for the band Suck. Even though Katy feels abandoned by her mom, even though the Rat's place is a mess and he's not like anything she'd call a father, Kathy won't make a fuss. After all, she is a girl who is quiet and polite, a girl who smiles, a girl who is, well, beige. Or is she?
From the author of Boy Proof and The Queen of Cool comes an edgy LA novel full of humor, heart, and music.
