Description


When Bee woke up, there was a girl standing in her room. "You are me," the girl said. Then she was gone.

I am a thirteen-year-old double Gemini. I get bad grades, write poetry with my left hand, dance in my room, surf the net. I Google images of the tattoos my mom won't let me get. . . .

But my world belongs to someone else. Someone who lives below the concrete of Los Angeles, someone with wild eyes and twigs in her hair.

And I think she wants her life back.

Praise For…


“Short enough to be read in one sitting, but nonetheless has an impact that will be felt much longer…perplexing and ethereal.”
-ALA Booklist

“Awash in a bruised and aching adolescent sensibility, Weetzie Bat author Block’s new novel doesn’t waste a word… Haunting and thought provoking.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Block’s trippy poetic prose and magical realism will enthrall her fans.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
