KL going and I have met briefly, twice. We are both tiny little ladies with books that have the love of rock in them. So I thought I'd email her and ask her if she had a list. KL kindly pointed me out to her soundtrack for her awesome book Fat Kid Rules The World.
She says Hey Cecil... This is the perfect question for me to answer because I didn't know a lot about punk before I wrote Fat Kid. My discovery of it was partly what sparked the idea for the novel. I was like, hey this is so cool I need to write about it! So, punk primer I can definitely do. I came up with a soundtrack list for Fat Kid which I posted on my web site. I'd still choose most of those, maybe a few different ones less related to that book.
Behold her kick ass list!!!!
