I was attempting to read most of what Francesca Lia Block wrote. I am stopping with Weetzie Bat.
My purpose in reading Block was to get an idea of what made a successful YA writer. I think I get what makes her writing popular with certain readers. I definitely get that it would never work for me.
Block's style and themes are far from anything that I would write. Her works have a large fantasy (think fairies) element. Her characters are of indeterminate age, though if I were forced to, I'd put them in their late teens. Adults in her stories are borderline evil. At best, they are absent and neglectful.
I know there are many who love Block's stories, but they are not what I want to read.
