The Waters & the Wild (Hardcover)
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.
About the Author
Francesca Lia Block, winner of the prestigious Margaret A. Edwards Award, is the author of many acclaimed and bestselling books, including Weetzie Bat; the book collections Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books and Roses and Bones: Myths, Tales, and Secrets; the illustrated novella House of Dolls; the vampire romance novel Pretty Dead; and the gothic werewolf novel The Frenzy. Her work is published around the world.
“Short enough to be read in one sitting, but nonetheless has an impact that will be felt much longer…perplexing and ethereal.”
“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)
