    Terrific, deftly personal academic writing It was a library book and I copied down like 3 4 of the bibliography I probably should have just Xeroxed it, it occurred to me much later I just found it such an empowering experience and I d recommend it to every teenage girl to be in a band Because it s all about doing something together, launching something together that s your own It does take quite a bit to get it off the ground, quite a bit of guts Lucy O Brien
