This book is straight up weird. Underneath all the hippy fantasy is a message about love and family and staying together and being happy. But that sort of gets lost is how out there the plot is.

I liked the characters and their names. I also liked the authors style but thought it lacked plot and end abruptly.

I discovered Weetzie Bat after reading a favorable review by Nick Hornby. I rarely read YA novels, but this book has the ability to crossover into an adult market. It was such a fun read. The book flies by--it's less than a hundred pages. I loved reading about Weetzie's L.A.. As soon as I finished this book I went looking for more works by Francesca Lia Block!

Weetzie Bat is a definite recommended book because the author covers all issues the society is going through now. Gays, teenage pregnancy, divorce. Weetzie has to go through a lot to find her happily ever after. She works so hard through all of the problems life throws at her, and she relizes that it was all worth it.

This has to be one of the weirdest books I have ever read. At first it was good, but then it just kept getting weirder. Especially how her boyfriend was named My Secret Agent Lover Man. . . .

I would give it a zero if I could, but seeing as it is not possible, I choose to go with the lowest rating that I could. The writing style was awful, the narration made little or no sense, and the author sounded like she was high the entire time. I could not understand why this book got the reviews it did seeing as the writing level was similar to that of a second grader, but if you are some hipster who likes "artistic statements" by all means read this horrible novel.

Its such a different book but the continuing theme of love is eomthing that makes this book wonderful. Its just a different family and the beat of the book is fantastic. A really good short read.

It is truly a magical story filled with enchanted pages of Weetzie's life in L.A. Five stars!

I like the title of the book because it fits the book. I also like the title because that shows who the story is mainly about.

Francesca Lia Block did a really great job with this book. It was very interestingly written and intriguing. It kept my attention the whole time I was reading it. The thing that I loved and admired about this book was the authenticity of the writing and details. I cannot think of any detail used in this book that would be clichéd or even normal. Block used amazingly evocative details in everything she described. The way the characters were developed and the way the characters behaved ended up being used as more original ways to paint a picture in the reader¿s mind of what was happening. This book was also very creative. I had never read anything quite like it before. I felt myself really having to open my mind up to some of Block¿s ideas and really get creative. I liked the feeling of having a challenge presented to my creative side and really having to think out of the box to picture many of the scenes and descriptions. I also really liked how the storyline wasn¿t the normal coming-of-age type of theme that is sometimes too prevalent in young adult novels. It really achieved many of the goals that those types of books try to achieve, while at the same time, stretching the mind of the reader. I would definitely recommend this book to young adult and even adult readers. It is a wonderfully funny and entertaining book!

ahh this is such a great book! i love how it's not all realistic. i hate books where it's just the same old 'girl discovering herself in a big city' kind of thing. this book was way different from anything i've ever read. different in a good way though! i loved it
