About the BookObsessed by social networking, reality tv, Internet porn, fashion, film, music, sex, and drugs – today’s teens are on an existential collision course with disaster. With an insider’s eye for nuance, language and style, Davey Havok, lead singer and songwriter of AFI and Blaqk Audio, creates a blistering, yet compelling portrait of high school angst in his debut novel POP KIDS (Black Candy Publishing; April 4, 2013; popkidsbook.com).

Acknowledging the power of popular culture to serve as both a corrupter and a creative force, Havok welcomes readers into a world where wearing the right clothes, listening to the right music, and indulging in a vicious cycle of self-gratifying behaviors is more important than anything else. Parents, teachers, and other adults are but vague shadows in the lives of these teens. POP KIDS may shock some readers with its unflinching portrayal of a generation weaned on modern media and the cult of celebrity. But according to Havok, this is a world that really exists. He captures it with his trademark use of wordplay and his eye for detail. POP KIDS is destined to become a classic story of teenage angst, nihilistic behavior, and longed-for redemption.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
DAVEY HAVOK is a singer and songwriter for the bands AFI and Blaqk Audio. He is also an actor who has appeared in numerous films and on Broadway in Green Day’s American Idiot.

If anyone can pull this off successfully, it's Davey.
Looking forward to this, as much as I want a new AFI record first.
Seems very Bret Easton-Ellis inspired.

This will most likely rule. Davey is the man and can write circles around any of his peers. Hoping for new AFI sooner rather than later, though.

I wish it was a companion to a new AFI album, like Claudio did with Year of the Black Rainbow. But that's just me wanting more AFI music!
