Weetzie Bat

bookcover
Author: Francesca Lia Block

A genie of the lamp grants Weetzie Bat three wishes. The three wishes begin to come true as Weetzie meets her “Secret Agent Lover Man” (named just that), and her gay best friend Dirk meets “Duck.” They all live together in a house in Los Angeles that Dirk inherited from his grandmother. When Weetzie decides she wants to have a baby, Secret Agent Lover Man tells her that he has no interest in being a father because of what the world is like. Dirk and Duck want to be parents as well, but since they are both men, they cannot conceive together. Weetzie, Dirk, and Duck hatch a plan to conceive a child together. When this is achieved Secret Agent Lover Man feels betrayed and leaves. Is he gone forever? Will Weezie’s happy family ever be happy again? Can Secret Agent Lover Man get over this betrayal?
