I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone by Stephanie Kuehnert
You can really tell that this adult novel was published by MTV Books. Teen angst--whew! I loved the punk rock references, as the main character, Emily Black discovers exactly what role music should take in her life. She was raised by her dad to love music and is a popular punk rocker by her teen years. But Emily is haunted by her mother who left when Emily was a baby to "follow the music." But Emily knows there is more to the story than that. Emily, like tons of musicians, struggles with drugs, alcohol, and crazy boyfriends. But she needs to find herself somewhere in all that and eventually she does. High school girls will love this book, I just know it.
