    Summary:

    Seventeen-year-old Frankie is obsessed with what everyone else is thinking. She can keep up with the chat-from feminism to boys with tattoos-but when it comes to her own ideas, it's not so easy to hide her lack of confidence. With the help of her best friend, Haruna, Frankie forms a punk-rock girl band to attract the attention of Doc-her spiky-haired, joint-smoking ex-boyfriend. She's got it all sorted: the Instagram page is live, the handmade posters are everywhere, and the band even has a first gig lined up (even if they are playing to a handful of retired bingo fans). But in her efforts to make the band a success and get Doc to notice her, Frankie starts to care less about what he thinks and more about how much she loves making very loud music. She finally feels a glimpse of who she can be, independent of anyone else. Then one day, Doc decides he is going to win her back...
