ALA Booklist
In 1998 in New Jersey, 17-year-old Chris has been working at Vinyl Destination for a month and still feels like the new girl among all the other hip workers at the music shop. Her fellow employees shoo her d only her t of the store every night, making Chris certain the all-female crew is hiding something. She is shocked to learn that the girls are part of an injustice-battling vigilante club. The story is filled with angst and likable characters. Chris is relatable as an insecure teenage girl, and one burning question throughout the story is whether Maggie will return Chris' romantic feelings. The time period is reinforced by constant references to late-1990s bands, pop culture, clothing, and cultural subgroups. The illustrations are colorful and refined, and the diverse cast of characters presents a broad range of identities that are all treated matter-of-factly. Teen fans of the girl power in Lumberjanes, adult fans of the movie High Fidelity, and those who were coming of age in the late '90s will love the series.

When Chris joins the staff at her local record store, she’s surprised to find out that her co-workers share a secret: they’re all members of a secret fight club that take on the patriarchy and fight crime!

Starry-eyed Chris has just started the dream job every outcast kid in town wants: working at Vinyl Mayhem. It's as rad as she imagined; her boss is BOSS, her co-workers spend their time arguing over music, pushing against the patriarchy, and endlessly trying to form a band. When Rosie Riot, the staff's favorite singer, mysteriously vanishes the night before her band’s show, Chris discovers her co-workers are doing more than just sorting vinyl . . . Her local indie record store is also a front for a teen girl vigilante fight club! 
Follow writer Carly Usdin (director of Suicide Kale) and artist Nina Vakueva (Lilith’s World) into Heavy Vinyl, where they deliver a rock and roll tale of intrigue and boundless friendship.
