Description

During the So-Cal Mod revival of the mid-1980s, one teen's simple quest to buy a Vespa is about to turn into an amazing story.

It's 1985, and to say Tommy Daniels is Mod-obsessed is no understatement: buying a scooter is the ultimate goal of his young life. When he hits the road on his search, it will be the strangest, most shocking three days imaginable, and he'll encounter a host of colorful characters, including a jerk cop and the Mod girl of his dreams, but nothing's going to stand in his way. His is a story of wanting something so badly, you'll put everything on the line to get it. Along the way, each chapter introduces a soundtrack song from Tommy's Mod mixtape.

Also included, "It's a Way of Life," an essay about the Mod revival in 1980s Southern California by Bart Mendoza, lead singer of the band Manual Scan, noted music journalist, and a prime player in the San Diego Mod scene. This prose novel includes a color image section featuring some prime Mod moments in California from the 1980s, as well as acclaimed artist Ralph Cosentino's cover for Dr. Harvey's Victor the Vespa, the fictional book written by a character in the story!
