Raw, gritty, and energtic prose capture your attention from page one. You're sucked into Jim's world, and you stay enthralled. "Godspeed" is like no other novel out there today. This book tells a tale from the other side of the lesbian community; a side that some would wish to sweep delicately under the proverbial rug. In a world where everyone is trying to be p.c. and some things are still taboo, "Godspeed" kicks down the barriers and relates to those who still feel outside the "gay/lesbian norm".

Every moment I wasn't pouring over this wonderful novel, I wanted to be. Jim makes you want to slap him upside the head and mother him with warm bowls of soup at the same time.

Breedlove's first novel is pure genius--funny, sad, and always real. It breathlessly follows the exploits of Jim, a butch bike messenger, as she keeps on doing her woman wrong and keeps on getting high. Jim's in love and screwing up big time, and something's gotta give--but it's going to take a while. And along the way there are drug deals to be made, sexy pouting punkrock femmes simply throwing themselves at her, awesomely loud chick bands for which she gets to roadie, squatter boy allies with whom she can fight The Man, and a whole lot more. This is a totally exhilarating read. Kirkus Reviews needs to get someone with a clue to start reviewing books like this, 'cause it doesn't get any realer!

An amazing novel, along the lines of Michelle Tea's Valencia.
