Angela is the first story in the Blister novel, in which Blister falls for a girl at a funeral, and spends some time trying to impress her. It also explores the inner-band dynamic between him and his bass-playing best friend, Harv, as egos conflict, with a little teen angst and a dash of planetary revolution thrown into the mix.
Who or What is Blister?
Blister is a teenager in a punk band looking for his place in an evolving world. He thinks he’s got things figured out, but he is continually challenged by everyday issues—you know… girls, jerks, and the age old question, “Am I punk enough?” Can one ever really be punk enough? Answers to these questions and how Blister navigates his world along with his conspiracy theorist best friend and bandmate, Harvey Schnieder, whom he refers to as a “perpetual fifth-grader” puts punk in perspective and rebellion within reach.

“At times it’s an accurate portrayal of living as a teen in the 90’s, at other times it’s an outrageous comedy that’s filled with awesome one liners (if this was a movie, everyone would all be quoting it ad nauseam).”
