Description

The X Gang must learn to adapt to a changing world.

A new face of violence and hate has come to Portland, Maine, and the X Gang find themselves targeted once again. It is the early 80s, and the youth subculture they have grown up with is changing. Kurt, X, and the others have concluded, reluctantly, that they are unlikely to ever change the world with their punk anthems, but that the world is still worth changing. The friends lean on each other for the strength to deal with death, addiction, and the sexism and racism they see around them.

Meanwhile, the police and the FBI are on the trail of a killer, and a member of the X Gang holds the secret to the fugitive’s sinister motivations. The Resist Stance tells the shocking story of how hatred can become a cause and how we must stand together against it no matter what the cost.

Editorial Reviews

Tension starts high and stays there in this unflinching page-turner, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the early punk scene and a moving testament to the power of friendship.

— Publishers Weekly, for Recipe for Hate

Kinsella skilfully blends convincing depictions of both the punk scene and the racist underground with the hoary trope of a band of kids setting out to solve a mystery … a suspenseful page-turner that also gives considerable food for thought.

— Quill and Quire, for Recipe for Hate
