My wishes were not granted, mostly. I was prepared to read a short, but pleasantly shocking, quirky urban young adult fantasy novel of the ageless sort. Something that has earned being referenced in every other modern fairytale review. But I was disappointed by something s ...more

This book probably had a bigger impact on me than any other single thing I've ever read, before or since.
The names drove me crazy, though. Weetzie, Duck, Duke, Dirk, Cherokee, Witch Baby, and My Secret Agent Lover Man.
