Still one of my favorite books. Do yourself a favor and instead buy Dangerous Angels, which has five of the Weetzie Bat books in it (including the first, Weetzie Bat). I don't mind supporting the author and buying both but if you have a limited budget, get the Dangerous Angels book instead.

This is a sweet little story of what I can only call a punk-rock-hippy girl finding love and family in Hollywood/Los Angeles, California. Francesca Lia Block's immersive storytelling and unique descriptive narrative drew me in even though I am not a fan of punk rock, hippies, or storybook romance. There is something compelling in this simple and relatively short book. The definition of whimsical, there are touches of fantasy amid liberal splashes of glitter, feathers, flowers, and vivid colors.

It only takes a few hours to read at a decent speed. Definitely give it a try.

I wanted to love this book, I can't say that I did, though I did like it. It was an odd mix of fantasy and reality, which is why I should have loved it, however I think in this case this story would have been better served picking - real life or a fairy tale fantasy and sticking with one or the other. The blending of the two worlds didn't really work for me. I felt as though things like witches and genies were in the story just to justify the quirkiness of the characters or to make some the storylines just fall into place without having to work them out the way they'd really have to occur for real people.

That said, I did love the characters and the realness of them. Take away the fantasy aspect and I'd probably have loved it, and I do actually love fantasy, it just seemed out of place here. And oddly enough, that aspect only show up in the story here and there but what it adds to the story is so huge, I can't give it a higher rating. I do think at some point I will read the rest of the series though. I did like it at least that much. It deals with birth and death and everything in between in such an honest way that I can't help but wonder what else that author has to say about these characters.

On Amazon it's listed in children's book categories with a reading level of Young Adult. I'm an adult but I have no doubt that my own mom would not have objected to me reading this book when I was young, however this book includes a homosexual couple that are completely accepted by everyone in the book, a threesome (no details), cheating, drinking (it's not really clear if it's by minors or once they're of age), mentions drugs, etc. I can see why some parents would object to the content in this book even if I wouldn't, so if buying this for a child, keep that in mind.
I brought this book for a pre-teen girl of 12...each year I try to get something out of the ordinary for her to read, something that she would not pick herself....I read reviews in the LA Times book review section every Sunday and keep copies of reviews of books that might fit my need, or seem interesting to me, or something that a teenager might like...Also, I read magazines like Essence and Ebony and see what books are out or coming out that might appeal...I buy books for gifts twice a year at Birthdays and Christmas. I buy books about 4 times a year for has the best prices in the world, when it comes to books and CDs...I love it is so easy to find what I am interested in and get a good price.

I orginally ordered this book as a possible option for a teen "banned book" club. As such , I had really high hopes for it. I wanted to like the book. I just couldn't.

Let me preface this by saying that I have no objection to the topics n the book. In fact, for a discussion group, it brings up many possible discussion topics for teens, and that is not a bad thing. I just couldn't stand the book. The main character is very privileged and spends the entire book doing whatever she wants regardless of how that may affect others, and she has the financial means to do this. She doesn't struggle. She doesn't overcome obstacles. She wants something and she gets it. Whch, in itself, could be a great discussion point. However, the writing feels very spastic and disjointed. It was a very quick read but it defnitely wasn't enjoyable or thought provoking. I kept turning pages in the hopes that it would get better. It didn't.

Beautiful and perfectly written. Describes the bubble gum patina of youthful innocence flawlessly, including those dark things that break through the surface as inevitably happens in real life. This book is my teenage dream.
