Ah...those turbulent teenage years. Sweet little girls become bullies, beautiful mothers drink themselves into oblivion, fathers leave, and friends are both confusing and steadfast. Weetzie Bat wallows in self-pity until she finally begins to see the beauty in all things, good and bad.

Weetzie is trying to make sense of it all...picking the angels out amongst the demons. Who is to blame for all the madness? Eventually she comes into her own and takes what she can from her lonely situation.

Pink Smog a prequel to Weetzie Bat is full of the same imagery and quirkiness that we've come to know of Francesca Lia Block. The story takes place at a time when love, drugs, and free spirits were everywhere...all Weetzie Bat wants is her first love, Charlie to come back and to find her rightful place under the pink smog of L.A.
