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.

"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"
