Violet & Claire

Posted 26 March 2003, 5.02 pm by Elyse

Violet: A seventeen-year-old girl raised in Hollywood by rich parents. Wears black. Wants to make movies. Ambitious, constantly writing her screenplay. Falls for a rock star. Likes cocaine.
Claire: Another seventeen-year-old, from the midwest. Dreams of faeries. innocent to a fault. Writes poetry. Violet calls her "Tinker Bell."

I think the reason I liked this book is because it's one of the few I've read where the characters seemed real.Most books about teenage girls are bullshit. Maybe I wanted to be Violet. Maybe I have a little too much in common with Claire. All I know is that I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. It's a girly book, sure, but not one of those cheesy Judy Blume, comming of age stories. A quick read, I recommend this book by Francesca Lia Block to all the girlies who need a little excitement in their lives.

Buy it at amazon

Francesca Lia Block is the bestest. Don't forget to read... well, everything else by her. The Weetzie Bat series is a mustl; you can find all the books in "Dangerous Angels ."

My very favourite is "The Hanged Man," I can't tell you how many times I've read it.

Honestly, though, I didn't like Violet & Claire nearly as much as I liked any of her first books.

Oh... "I Was a Teenage Fairy" is up there with my favourite books. Another must. One of her best, for sure.

I was at a bookstore with Sunny last night and I bought it on a whim, I thought it was neat that it took place in Hollywood, where I am right now, and the fact that I just randomly picked it up, it was pretty cool. I'm going to look into her other books when I have the chance. Thanks Dot!

I done it in pencil on cotton bond 8 1/2" by 11" in November of 90. I call it "Self Portrait". That's me in the gas mask.
