"an audacious young woman from the start"

It’s like a soap opera designed by Hieronymus Bosch, romping along in splendid style with the ghostly guidance of writer Cathi Unsworth... Jordan gives her a trick toffee tasting of mustard – but to be fair we were just kids. If you’ve never read a book about punk, this is the only one you’ll ever need. Reading, I felt glad I’d been part of it – going from disbelief to acceptance and skipping all the bad bits, just this once.
