Make This Movie: Francesca Lia Block's 'Weetzie Bat'

30 July 2010 3:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I first read Francesca Lia Block's book Weetzie Bat as a teen, and it immediately shot to the top of my list of Favorite Books Ever. Even now, I give the omnibus of Weetzie Bat stories, Dangerous Angels, to friends as gifts.

Weetzie Bat is a young girl living in Los Angeles who hates high school because, of course, no one understands. But what they don't understand is the magic around them. She wears cowboy boots and feathered headdresses and sometimes roller skates, and her best friend is a handsome guy with a Mohawk named Dirk. When he comes out to her, she just says that it's cool because now they can go looking for their true loves together; that's just how Weetzie rolls. Weetzie builds her own family of friends and lovers throughout Block's books, and while the stories don't shy away from the dark side of life at all -- AIDs, »
