Francesca Lia Block, Dangerous Angels: She is a colourful girl. She meets a boy called Dirk. Witch Baby always felt out of place. With her tangled up hair and purple eyes and anger, she was never as soft and gentle as her almost-mom Weetzie, or her half-sister Cherokee.
Only Angel Juan could ever make her feel like she belonged. When no letters follow his Witch Baby always felt out of place. When no letters follow his first postcard to her, she becomes even more frantic, and knows she has to go. Witch Baby would wallow in her aloneness, if not for the appearance of a spectral Charlie. With his help, Witch Baby wanders the city, usually searching for Angel Juan, sometimes sidetracked by her Ghostly Grandfather, but almost always gaining a new appreciation for life. In the end, she follows her heart, which leads her to Angel Juan, and to some realizations about the dangers of the way she wants to cling to him and keep him to herself.
Nov 13, Marie rated it liked it Shelves: Missing Angel Juan is the fourth Weetzie Bat book. It's told from Witch Baby's point of view, and it wasn't my favorite. Witch Baby is just a dark character. She was hard for me to connect with. In this book, she travels to NYC to find Angel Juan, who had gone there to find himself and his music. While there, she stays in Charlie Bat's apartment. We see the entire story from Witch Baby's point of view, and she's seeing things.
Like Charlie Bat's ghost. There's also a very dark part near the end Missing Angel Juan is also a love story. Witch Baby needs to find Angel Juan because they are in love. She talks about almost being able to sense him because they're so close. So I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a romance. It's a quick read, and the language is quite lovely. Sep 02, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: After reading a post in agentfroot's journal the other day where she mentioned this book, I ended up with it on the brain for a while. Finally I gave in and took it off of the shelf and read it to my husband, beginning to end, last night.
And made an interesting discovery. This is a book to be read aloud. A lot of books aren't. Salman Rushdie, for instance. I tried to read one of his books to Andrew a month or so ago and I could barely make myself finish the chapter. The book is now disappeared, After reading a post in agentfroot's journal the other day where she mentioned this book, I ended up with it on the brain for a while. The book is now disappeared, somewhere, and I will not be attempting to finish it. But Angel Juan is just perfect for reading aloud.
It was a nice way to spend an evening. For those of you not familiar with Block, the Weetzie Bat series is kind of a bizarre modern faerie tale.enter
It's magical realism transported to LA with AIDS and plastic flamingos and disease and christmas lights and magic and despair. It's written for adolescents, and all five books are short, devourable in a single sitting. People usually adore her or are driven batty by her. You should check her out and figure out which one you are. Jul 27, Julie Decker rated it really liked it. Witch Baby doesn't love easily--or maybe she loves too easily and it destroys her.
Weetzie Bat (Literature) - TV Tropes
When her beloved boyfriend Angel Juan leaves Los Angeles, she feels she has to pursue him to be complete, and so she gathers up the money she has and ventures out into the world, with very little besides roller skates and a camera. She finds the ghost of her almost-grandpa, Charlie Bat, and finds his presence comforting and illuminating on her quest to be part of her boyfriend's new world. Block's magical realism h Witch Baby doesn't love easily--or maybe she loves too easily and it destroys her.
Block's magical realism has a unique appeal in any book she writes, but in this one, there's a connection that was missing from most of her other books. It's written in first person present tense, unlike the others, so we feel a little closer to Witch Baby and her strange perspectives, framed through her eyes and camera lens.
The shift in perspective made everything a little more intimate, and I appreciate seeing this side of Ms. Dec 04, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I was in my late teens, this was my absolute favourite book.
Missing Angel Juan
It's still one of FLB's absolute best. Witch Baby doesn't really fit in with the rest of her whimsical family. With her wild tangled hair and fits of melancholy, she feels like a big bummer who is bringing the rest of them down. The only person who makes her feel whole is her boyfriend, Angel Juan, who leaves glittery L. Heartbroken, she stops eating and leaving her room. When he stops writing her very suddenly, she is sure that he is in danger and follows him.
The book falls firmly into magic realism territory, as do all of Block's stories. As a curly-haired often-sad person, I loved Witch Baby very much. It's gorgeously written, with amazing descriptions that turn whole cities into character's of their own. May 31, Cera rated it it was amazing. My favourite of the Weetzie Bat books; it's Witch Baby's coming of age, and does a pitch-perfect job of being a fairy tale in which the fantasy elements dramatise psychological development. I also loved that it was a story about the objectification of one's lover in which it is the woman who objectifies the man and has to learn how to let go and let him grow into his own self instead of the self she imagined.
It's very much a feminist story because it shows the woman with power and agency, and t My favourite of the Weetzie Bat books; it's Witch Baby's coming of age, and does a pitch-perfect job of being a fairy tale in which the fantasy elements dramatise psychological development. I also adore Witch Baby's first-person voice. I would read a dozen more novels from her POV. Aug 12, Greta is Erikasbuddy rated it it was amazing. The 4 installment of the Weetzie Bat books is just as good as the previous 3.
I really thought that this book would have been told from Angel Juan's pov btw kids I thought that it would have been about his time in Mexico or maybe having to go back to Mexico. I didn't expect it to be told from Witch Baby's pov, but I really enjoyed that. It's a great story about letting love go and learning to let love in. I really really loved it ; I have one book left and I'm almost sad to see them go. I'm actually reading "Dangerous Angels" which contains all 5 of the Weetzie Bat books. I just thought it would be easier to review them one book at a time ; Jan 24, Laura rated it it was amazing.
I still gave this five stars because I absolutely loved every book in this series as a teen, and Witch Baby was definitely my favorite, so while re-reading it, I couldn't help being intoxicated by all the nostalgia. However, re-reading it a second time as an adult, I have to say this one in particular is not as great as I remember.

Or as great as some of the other ones. I love Witch Baby but she just seemed so whiny and needy in this one. And there wasn't enough Angel Juan. And it just seemed to I still gave this five stars because I absolutely loved every book in this series as a teen, and Witch Baby was definitely my favorite, so while re-reading it, I couldn't help being intoxicated by all the nostalgia. And it just seemed to drag on.
It was just a bit boring and I was left disappointed this second time around. Apr 21, Marjorie Elwood rated it it was amazing Shelves: Instead, she finds her ghost father, who is clinging to thoughts of her almost-mother. She finds herself, clinging to her fear of being alone. By filling the void within herself with creativity and love, she is able to let go and trust that: It will be in you. May 17, Jess rated it really liked it. This one made me really sad!

The family that took her in called her Witch Baby and raised her as their own. But even though she tried to fit in, Witch Baby never felt as though she truly belonged. So one day she packed her bat-shaped backpack, put her black cowboy-boot roller skates, and went out into the real world to find out who she really was User reviews 2 reviews.
