Review:
In a town called L.A. lived Weetzie Bat, a high school girl with a bleached-white flattop, pink Harlequin sunglasses, sugar-frosted eye shadow, and a best friend named Dirk. When Dirk tells Weetzie he is gay, she hugs him and says, "Now we can duck hunt together." Life as they live it is almost perfect, except Weetzie Bat has three wishes. As in traditional fairy tales, the folkloric themes in this modern one are bona fide. The language, however, is a Southern California import. Perhaps the mores are too. Weird as the characters may seem to the rest of the country, the book's tone is sweet. Its mood and message are the same: love (with or without sensuality) includes everybody. Parents may want to discuss this book with their children.
