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.

A short book which attempted to convey depth and insight with juvenile literary techniques - gimmicks, rather - but failed miserably. The overall writing itself was sub-par, and the technique of an unreliable narrator was detrimental. A very quick read, owing to its being bereft of intricacies and nuances. I wouldn't recommend it.
