If you’ve ever had to deal with meeting girls at funerals, dressing as a costumed character just to get a job, ducking in a field of grass to hide from the cops with an asshole you hate, battling an addiction to buttercream frosting, outrunning a hot girl’s thug boyfriend, or trying not to punch your best friend’s dickhead older brother in the face; this book’s for you.
Angela is the first story in the Blister novel, in which Blister falls for a girl at a funeral, and spends some time trying to impress her. It also explores the inner-band dynamic between him and his bass-playing best friend, Harv, as egos conflict, with a little teen angst and a dash of planetary revolution thrown into the mix.
Punk rocker, Blister almost immediately regrets letting his band-mate Harv talk him into the publicity stunt to end all publicity stunts. They are going to play an unannounced show on the roof of their school during the biggest basketball game of the year!
The band takes to the sky, almost literally, in this ridiculous glance into a day in the lives of Wellington’s finest punk duo, Blister.
