Happy 2013 Epic Readers! We’re kicking off the new year with a new book to read for our book club! This month we’re reading PINK SMOG by Francesca Lia Block. Perhaps you’ve heard of Francesca’s other popular book, Weetzie Bat? Well, Pink Smog is the prequel so newbies and long-time Weetzie Bat lovers can all enjoy this book! (Hence why we chose it for our book club!)
GIVEAWAY! Enter to win a copy of PINK SMOG by posting a question for Francesca on our forums!
About Pink Smog: Despite how much Louise insists, no one will call her Weetzie. It’s her dad’s nickname for her, but it won’t stay put. Neither will her dad. Charlie left Louise and her mom and he took everything with him: her family, her home—and her understanding of who she’s meant to be.
But Los Angeles is a city full of strange angels, and Louise embarks on a journey to sift through the smog of her heartbreak, to grow her own wings, to become Weetzie.
