ancestors, all of whom stand out against cultural constructs and manifest into one person who is the stuff of legends, one others follow, because to be around Kid is to live the life others only dream of.Kid Cade and Joe Bolt, friends from childhood have a shared vision, to play in a band From this, Cry Baby Jake, a punk rock band, is born Comprised of four very different personalities, Kid with his wild, passionate, poetic soul Joe, talented, grounded and loyal to a fault Cecily DeLuca and Natasha Olejnik, the remaining members, imprint their insecurities and strengths on the souls of these two passionate men Cecily, abandoned as a child and Natasha, the immigrant daughter of Ukrainian parents, approach life from opposite ends of the spectrum, but both perceive the band as their family and their home.Ms Ramone brilliantly depicts these four opposing personalities, and how each cope with the physical, social, and emotional components of public success and personal failure The difference between a four and five star review, for me, is whether I believe a book is relevant and will stand the test of time will a reader pick a book up in twenty, thirty, fifty years from now and find it compelling I believe Burning Down Rome has this quality When Your Life Becomes A Lie You Can Close Your Eyes Or Start Bucking Like A Wild Horse And Become A Legend BURNING DOWN ROME Follows

and Joey become unlikely but very good friends by circumstance or destiny and form a band Both have interesting backgrounds, as have the two girls that will join the band and family.The book is full of character depth which makes the rise and the shaky parts of their musical path very relatable and interesting They are fascinating humans with lots of baggage but we get to see them as real people rather than the stars from celebrity magazines You never fail to see their vulnerable sides, their reasons for acting and acting out.I found the book almost impossible to put down a phrase I hate to use in reviews In perfect pace Ramone shows us the personal growth while portraying the joys, pressures and ins and outs of the life of a band.Written with prefect prose the story is engaging and an easy read, it is spiked with great analogies and superb dialogue I wrote down several quotes to make sure I remember them.This is a heart felt story as it could happen, made real through engaging characters and the realistic style Much is said in excellent key scenes to introduce our heroes easily, but we learnabout their interesting backgrounds throughout The setting of the scene is well done and feels very authentic To pitch a musicians life in a convincing and emotionally relatable manner is hard, but Ramone pulled it off with sensitivity, compassion and tact.Making rockstars human, seeing them as stars and normal people their passion, their focus well I could go on I couldn t stop reading this book this is how good the book was I won this book on goodreads and loved that the
