Starry-eyed Chris has just started the dream job every outcast kid in town wants: working at Vinyl Mayhem. It's as rad as she imagined; her boss is BOSS, her co-workers spend their time arguing over music, pushing against the patriarchy, and endlessly trying to form a band. When Rosie Riot, the staff's favorite singer, mysteriously vanishes the night before her band's show, Chris discovers her co-workers are doing more than just sorting vinyl . . . Her local indie record store is also a front for a teen girl vigilante fight club!

Despite being set in the past (the 90s, with references to Buffy, Shirley Manson, Portishead, and 120 Minutes) this graphic novel is fresh and fun! It's a coming-of-age journey that combines the dream of working in a record shop (à la Empire Records, High Fidelity, Pretty in Pink) with riot grrrl fury. The girls at Vinyl Destination moonlight as a club of vigilantes, fighting for justice and the underdog. The book is fluffy and doesn't take itself too seriously (the brainwashing reminded me of the Josie and the Pussycats movie), but it also has some lovely queer representation. I'm excited to see where the series goes! The art is super adorable, too.
