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.

my favorite audio book

Weetzie Bat is a wondrous love letter to art, life and Los Angeles. Ms. Bresnehan handles the material and characters all with such conviction and care that even when sitting down to listen to only a chapter or two one feels compelled to listen to the entirety of her performance.

Not what I expected.

The fantastical/mystical story line made it very hard for me to enjoy this book. The characters didn't feel developed to me as they had a limited range of emotions from saddness to absolute- fantasy like love. No anger, callousness, or other ugly emotions that make for complex characters.
