Praise for Punk Rock Karaoke

* "An electrifying tale of passion and the pursuit of punk dreams in this graphic novel debut. . .Utilizing a gripping narrative, relatable situations, and evocative artwork with an aesthetic that oozes with late-1970s zine flair, Xunise imbues this comic with a fervent exuberance that embodies the ethos of punk: being real and true to oneself, building community around unfettered self-expression, and creating lasting art that doesn't subscribe to the mainstream." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "The phenomenal art shows off the edgy and colorful tableau of the South Side Chicago punk scene, bringingreality and authenticity to the setting, and showcasing the author's experience . . . this glimpse into a world of music and friendship will resonate with many readers." --School Library Journal, starred review

"A vibrant, inclusive, feminist, punk-rock homage, guide, and coming-of-age story." --Kirkus Reviews

"Incredibly grounded in its neighborhood and scene, this is a great ride from start to finish." --Booklist
