Gigs. Riots. Adventures. Friendhip. Betrayal. It's both funny and dramatic. A true story that took place during 18 months in L.A. Also has a great message about standing up for your own beliefs, even if you lose friends because of it. LOOOOVED IT!

A fresh, interesting look at the punk scene

Well, I've got to say that this quick-paced book was fun to read. The author obviously put her heart and soul into writing this memoir, and it shows. Her story was poignant at some points, exciting at others, often quite funny, but always entertaining. As someone who witnessed the LA punk scene first hand, I found this book mirrored many of my own experiences, both good and bad. It brought back a lot of memories. Thanks, Aimee, for sharing this part of your life with us!

A Wonderful Book !!!

I'd recommend this book not just to those with an interest in the heyday of punk rock, but anyone who simply enjoys a great read. Of course, it was fun reading all the "inside stories" that the author wrote about with such wit and insight. However, I also just had a terrific time moving from one chapter to the next -- most made me laugh, but some made me cry. But all along, I couldn't put it down! "Coloring Outside the Lines" was simply a wonderful book. Thank you, Aimee, for sharing your life experiences with me!!

finally a true hollywood punk story

All I can say is that I felt that with each and every word written, that I was part of this punk scene that the author herself was in. As I read on and on, I visualized each and every day of her life and the lives of the characters. I felt like I was there. It would make a great film. I hope to see more books from this new author in the future. Kudos to her! A book well written for any age. I really enjoyed it and will let all my friends know about it. Cooper is well spoken and quite diverse.

Witty and Intelligent -- A Great Read!

I can't remember the last time I read a book that made me smile as much as "Coloring Outside the Lines"! It brought back some great memories of an important part of my life. Just as important, the book was very well written -- it really was hard for me to put down. I'd recommend it highly, not only to anyone who has an interest in what the punk rock scene was really like, but to anyone who simply enjoys a good read. My wife was never into punk music, but that didn't stop her from raving about the book, too!
