Judging A Book By Its Cover: I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone

The cover we're judging this week is:

I love this cover! The black and white picture is simple yet eye-catching, and the guitar picks add some much needed color and fun to the whole thing. I don't really like the blurb on the front because I think it makes it look a tad busy, but overall I would totally pick up this book based on the cover alone, and I love that is screams, "HELLO TODAY WE WILL BE DISCUSSING PUNK ROCK DEAL WITH IT."

Now that we've judged the cover let's see what the book's about:
A raw, edgy, emotional novel about growing up punk and living to tell.  
The Clash. Social Distortion. Dead Kennedys. Patti Smith. The Ramones. Punk rock is in Emily Black's blood. Her mother, Louisa, hit the road to follow the incendiary music scene when Emily was four months old and never came back. Now Emily's all grown up with a punk band of her own, determined to find the tune that will bring her mother home. Because if Louisa really is following the music, shouldn't it lead her right back to Emily?
