The Hurricane by Suzi Quatro
Alison Meridith Heart is a different kind of female: not masculine, not feminine, but somewhere right in between, a ‘one off’. She thinks like a man but has the emotions of a woman – a deadly combination. Long brown hair, hazel eyes, lanky, t-shirted, blue jeaned, cowboy booted, and a guitar player in a band of guys who call themselves The Rough Edges – a band she would quickly surpass in talent. Alison takes us through her life from Cleveland, to New York, to London, to Miami, from marriage to affair, from great happiness to great tragedy. It is a journey through the music business, and a journey through her heart – too much heart if the truth be known. Follow her through the emotional upheaval her life represents. She is a stranger in her own body, who unwittingly discovers ‘why’ she has always felt this way. The Hurricane blows in… ‘and nothing will ever be the same again’.
