The Punk Factor

By Rebecca Denton

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The Punk Factor tells the story of two girls who start a punk band and are not afraid of being loud and getting into trouble, whatever the consequences.

'Punk rock is just another word for freedom' - Patti Smith

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 . . .

Punk is nothing without the freedom to be exactly who you want. But what if you're not sure who that is yet? Can you make your own noise when everyone else seems so much louder than you?

'This Beats Perfect is a fabulous celebration of music, friendship, and following your dreams' Katherine Webber, author of Wing JonesAmelie Ayres has impeccable taste in music. Bowie. Bush. Bob. So when she finds herself backstage at The Keep's only UK gig she expects to hate it; after all they are the world's most tragic band. In fact she feels a grudging respect - not (obviously) for their music, but for the work that goes in to making them megastars. And when lead singer, 'Maxx', is not dressed up as a cross between Elvis and a My Little Pony, he is actually rather normal, talented and has creative struggles not too dissimilar to her own. But the next morning she wakes up and rolls over to discover a million new @'s on social media. Overnight, a photo of her at the gig has made her a subject of global speculation. Suddenly the world needs to know #Who'sThatGirl? - but for all the wrong reasons.All Amelie wants is to play her music. She's got the guitar, the songs, the soul and, in the safety of her bedroom, she's got the voice. But when it comes to getting up on stage, she struggles with self-doubt.Immaculate's a concept. Flawless is fake. But just sometimes music - and hearts - can rock a perfect beat.'A witty exploration into the world of celebrity' The Sun

A novel with echoes of timeless classics such as THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, THE BORROWERS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, Garry Kilworth's ATTICA reveals a twilight world of forgotten wonders, and extraordinary adventures - all happening just above our heads. Join Jordy, Alex and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful other place, accessible for just a moment in time through the trap-door of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests, to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises - and that's before they meet the inhabitants: strange clans of small and lumpen people who live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and - somehow - find a way back home.
