Synopsis: disco inferno! is a star-crossed teen romance set in 1979 Chicago in the days leading up to local rock radio station the Loop’s infamous Disco Demolition Night promotion at Comiskey Park. Bobby is a teenager from the northern suburbs. He loves the Cubs, John Travolta, and disco, while Misty is a city girl who digs the White Sox, the Ramones, and rock ‘n’ roll. But when their worlds collide on the 4th of July, feelings change, hearts melt, and sparks fly! This novel is rated PG-13 for mild weed and alcohol use, brief nudity, and occasional bad language.
Well-written and appealing Disco Inferno! has lively and eccentric characters that readers will easily feel a connection with. I love how the story takes place in the 70's and the author does a wonderful job of transporting readers back to a time of bell bottoms, baseball, and Disco Fever. I was just a young kid in 1979, but Disco Inferno! had me reminiscing about my childhood days. The romance, friendship, and fun make Disco Inferno! an all around great read.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
