Description

Lanky lizards and rubber chickens, slinkster dogs and Lanka girls-Weetzie Bat knows them all in the glitzy never-never land of L.A. With her blonde flat-top and trendy clothes, Weetzie Bat cruises from high school to neon clubs, looking for her Secret Agent Lover Man. When she meets dark-haired Dirk and his red Pontiac, their search for love is a funky, off-beat fable. And when three wishes come true, their adventures create a modern fairy tale. Weetzie Bat has been chosen for school reading lists across the nation. It is an ALA Best Book for Young Adults and an ALA Recommended Book for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. Alyssa Bresnahan's spirited narration highlights the sparkling language and sizzling images of this utterly original book.

Professional reviews

"Weetzie Bat is an ultramodern L.A. teenager, experiencing life and love as fully as possible. Although the array of characters is offbeat, even eccentric, a look beneath their brashness reveals quirky, yet real, people. Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan's nonchalant, breezy comfort with Weetzie's slang--"lanky-lizards," "Lanka girls," "ducks,"--makes Block's short novel highly entertaining. Bresnahan's melodious and versatile alto performs without a trace of reading. Her clear distinctions between cool Weetzie, the Lanka witch, beautiful Dirk and the three-wish-granting genie make this selection an excellent match of narrator and material. Characters and story, fantasy and reality, happiness and despair blend beautifully under Bresnahan's performance. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
