The Freak Table

by Gavin Hignight

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
We were the skaters, wavers, freaks, faggots, punks, goths, outsiders, and losers. We were punched, shoved, pushed, kicked, judged, beat up, beat down, and humiliated. In other words… we were teenagers. Every generation has its misfits. The Freak Table transports us to the starched suburbs of late-80s Denver where skateboarding’s a crime and listening to underground rock is akin to devil worship. Author Gavin Hignight’s adolescent narrator trades the safety of conformity for the post-punk music scene, choosing to suffer the consequences that come with being yourself. The Freak Table is a story for anyone who has ever felt alienated, hated or misunderstood. It’s the adventure of the kids who didn’t fit in, the tale of how they banded together to fight a battle called high school. Their trials hint at a larger rebellion at hand, a call for individuality that reverberated across the nation.
