It’s mid-1970s London and punk is in its embryonic stages. When uncool Lili is asked by Curtis Ray, the coolest kid in the school, to try out for his band, Naked, she leaps at the chance, and is thrown into a world inhabited by the likes of The Sex Pistols. With a new guitarist, William Bonney, the band really take off; William, though has a secret in his past that will have a devastating effect on Lili for the rest of her life. Naked is an atmospheric novel, using the extreme heat of 1976’s long hot summer to build an overcharged, sultry ambience. It could be dismissed as a nostalgia tip for people in their early 50s, but it also gives teen readers an insight into the early days of punk.
