The author of Love is a Mix Tape returns to share the soundtrack to his eighties adolescence. When he turned 13 in 1980, Sheffield had a lot to learn about women, love, music and himself, and here he offers a glimpse into his transformation from pasty, geeky "hermit boy" into a young man with his first girlfriend, his first apartment, and a sense of the world. It's all here: Inept flirtations. Dumb crushes. Deplorable fashion choices. Members Only jackets. Girls, every last one of whom seems to be madly in love with the bassist of Duran Duran. Sheffield's coming-of-age story has a playlist that any child of the eighties or anyone who just loves music will sing along with. These songs--and Sheffield's writing--will remind readers of that first kiss, that first car, and the moments that shaped their lives.--From publisher description

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was a great vacation read - and laugh-out-loud funny in several parts. If you are a child of the 80s and love new wave, this book will resonate with you.

I so desperately wanted to like this book, but it was such a chore to finish. 1 star for catchy title and references to some of my favorite songs from the 80s, but that's about it.
