Item Details

Now that she's exiled from her home with her mother in Montreal, Canada, Katy figures she'll bury her nose in a book and ignore the fact that she's spending two weeks with her estranged father -- punk name: the Rat -- a recovered addict and drummer for the famously infamous band Suck. Even though Katy doesn't want to be there, even though she feels abandoned by her mom, even though the Rat's place is a mess and he's not like anything she'd call a father, Katy won't make a fuss. After all, she is a nice girl, a girl who is quiet and polite, a girl who smiles, a girl who is, well, beige. Or is she?
