Weetzie Bat

The time has come to say goodbye to Weetzie. Maybe its a midwestern thing, but "stunning debut" or know, it's a disturbing book, and the 1989 counterculture references don't work any more. A boy checked this book out, and brought it back complaining because of a sentence on page 13 "He had met someone in a video booth at a local sex store and they had groped around there for a while, then gone to the guy's apartment". Later on, Weetzie decides to have a baby-- it's just not a good example. There is a whole series, and luckily this was the only one at my library. The latest Weetzie book came out last spring
