Notes from the Teenage Underground
Taking their anti-social edge one step further, seventeen-year-old Gem and her friends Mira and Lo have decided to go Underground. Their activities will be "extreme", "anti-establishment", "avant-garde" and "debauched".
While Gem makes an underground film and Mira sets about pursuing "boys-without-barcodes" no one knows what it is that Lo – the most subversive of the three – has planned. But in the back of her mind, Gem's worried. She feels the balance of the trio's friendship is always weighted against her. And as the weeks draw closer to Christmas, appearances start to deceive and relationships flounder. For all the promise of the group, Underground seems a dark place to be.

the reality of everything. You can actually picture this stuff happening.
How I Live Now - Meg Rosoff

maybe the self-titled Franz Ferdinand album.
A girl named Gem and her Underground (Ug) summer. She and her friends dabble in the underground art scene using muses like Andy Warhol. Their goal is a film and a Happening. Everything else happens from there.
