After the death of her father, Laurel is haunted by a legacy of family secrets, hidden shame, and shattered glass. Immersing herself in the heady rhythms of a city that is like something wild, caged, and pacing, Laurel tries to lose herself. But when she runs away from the past, she discovers a passion so powerful, it brings her roundabout and face-to-face with the demons she wants to avoid. In a stunning departure from her enormously popular Weetzie Bat books, Francesca Lia Block weaves a darkly exhilarating tale of shattered passions and family secrets. Francesca Lia Block once again breaks new ground in this compelling story about the secrets families keep. After the death of her father, Laurel is haunted by a legacy of hidden shames and family secrets.Immersing herself in the heady rhythms of the city, in the ever-quickening drumbeat of life on the edge, Laurel discovers a passion so powerful it brings her face to face with the demons in her past, and in doing so, threatens to send her spiraling out of control. "This is serious life Block is writing about?it's raw, hellish, heavenly, and real."?SLJ. "There can be no doubt about the book's literary merit."?BR. 1995 Recommended Books for Reluctant Young Adult Readers (ALA)1995 Books for the Teen Age (NY Public Library)
