Missing Angel Juan by Francesca Lia Block, Wendy Braun

Lonely City A tangly-haired, purple-eyed girl named Witch Baby lives in glitzy L.A. She loves a guy named Angel Juan. When he leaves for New York she knows she must find him. Looking For Love So she heads for the city of glittery buildings and garbage and Chinese food and drug dealers and subways and kids playing hip-hopscotch. Finding Trouble Her clues are an empty tree house in the park, a postcard on the street, a mannequin in a diner. Angel Juan is in danger, and only Witch Baby's heart-magic can make him safe.When Angel Juan leaves L. A.—and Witch Baby—to play his music and find himself in New York, Witch Baby, wild and restless without him, follows. The story that ensues "is an engagingly eccentric mix of fantasy and reality, enhanced—this time—by mystery and suspense. It is also magical, moving and mischievous, and—literally—marvelous."—SLJ.

In the book Missing Angel Juan by Francesca Lia Block, Witch Baby is looking for her boyfriend Angel Juan. When he leaves to New York, she runs after him trying to get him back. Witch was finding people during her journey and discovering things about her own life and others. I didn¿t really like this book. It was boring, repetitive, and very unrealistic. Throughout the whole book Witch Baby is looking for her boyfriend. All the ghosts that appear and statues that talk to her are so unrealistic it¿s hard to believe anything that happens. I wouldn¿t recommend reading this book. I would try a different Francesca Lia Block book first such as Cherokee and the Goat Guys or Witch Baby.
