Francesca Lia Block (born December 3, 1962) is an American writer of adult and young-adult literature: fiction, short stories, screenplays and poetry.

Meet Tweetie Sweet Pea and Peachy Pie, Jacaranda and Rave and Desiree...

Meet Lady Ivory and Alabaster Dutchess, who interview their favorite rock star, Nick Agate, only to discover the magic and power in themselves. Meet Tuck Budd, who is happy living in Manhattan with her two moms, Izzy and Anastasia, until she begins to wonder who her father is. Meet La, who faces the loss of her mother with an imaginary androgynous blue friend who lives in her closet. Zingingly bright and dreamily dark, full of wonder and gritty reality, these stories by acclaimed author Francesca Lia Block show the reader that in every girl there truly is a goddess.

The cutting-edge author of Weetzie Bat once again breaks new ground with Girl Goddess #9, nine stories about girl goddesses of every age and shape and color and size, wearing combat boots and spiky hair or dressed all in white. One girl has two moms, another has no mother at all but a strange blue skinned creature that lives in her closet. One is a rock star groupie, another loves dancing and reading poetry and having picnics in the backyard when the moon is full. These are stories about girls discovering that the world is not a simple place and that there is more than one way to live'all in Ms. Block's rich, lyrical language that fans have come to adore and that Sassy magazine called ‘a dream.'

Nine stories about girls who are lost in the world but find themselves as goddesses. Not in the literal meaning of Goddess, but they find that each of them are wonderful in their own way and they each have a place in the world.

This book is full of short stories about being a girl. Every type of girl. From a small girl that doesn't want to grow up, to girls that run a zine. Another great work for young girls by Francesca Lia Block. When I was introduced to her books, back when I first started reading YA, I couldn't get enough of her. She sends such a positive message in such a beautiful magical way. I love the way she uses words to craft her scenery. I enjoy this book, maybe a little less than I did when I was younger and still awakening within myself but I still appreciate it. I recommend this to any teenage girl that could use a little encouragement about being a girl.

First Line:
"In the morning, her mother helped her put on the bathing suit with the cartoon baby bird on it."

Favorite Line:
"I think about Raven and how nothing did, except that thing I said that day, and I wish more things had made her cry and I wish I could have swum just once in the sea if her mermaid tears where all the rockstars should have drowned."

I read this book as soon as I got it and immediately felt like I'd frozen. I've been reading her books sinc I was like 12, and this was the first time I'd ever felt dissapointed.

I mean firstly I couldn't get into the story "Girl Goddess #9" because it was just plain boring. I know that this was one of her first forays into writing because of how stilted it is. How bland the writing was.

"Winnie and Cubby" Word for word of another story she recreated in an anthology that mad me like her. "Winnie and Tommy" Wow. Just wow. I liked it, but you could tell that she was reeeallly aiming for the YA audience in this book. Seemed like a YA wrote it themselves. :(

I mean I'm not a big fan of the book, but it is cute. Her euphamisms are great, the writin is solid beyond being quite cheezy...but hey lots of people like it.

I just read it in an hour and said to myself "Wow how corny." and I think the story I liked least was "Dragons in Manhattan." The story premise is good, the message not so great. But Block has a way of letting teenagers run away smoke drink and have sex, plus eat cake and get offered niceties by older people while they get their fairy tale ending. If you like that, read this book. If you want something a little more real I'd suggest:

Kiki's delivery Service. Or any oldschool "Kid's book" the writing may surprise you.

I'm a huge Francesca fan, but this book disappointed me a little. Some of the stories were decent but they are not her best. I would recommend reading this if you really enjoy her writing style and perhaps if you are 13-16 years old.

For years I have been remembering one of the stories in this book and it was driving me crazy because I couldn't remember where I read it. I started to think that I was going crazy and just made it up. After hours and hours of searching I finally found it! So Exciting!!! :D
Wel
Girl Goddess #9 is a collection of short stories by Ms. Block. All of them are about girls who are very special in some way. "Tweetie Sweet Pea" is a story about a young baby and her life with her sister, Peachy Pie. "Blue" is about La, and her imaginary (or is she?) friend Blue, and her mother's role in her life of feeling unpopular. "Dragons in Manhattan" is about Tuck Budd and her confusion over who her dad is in her parents' relationship, since they both appear to be female. "Girl Goddess #9" is about lady ivory and alabaster duchess, two girls who write about their idolization of a rock star in their zine. "Rave" is actually written in the voice of a guy, about a girl named Raven, and how they are both "freaks." "The Canyon" is about Désirée and escaping reality and death. "Pixie and Pony" is about best friend girls and girl relationships. "Winnie and Cubby" is about Winnie and Cubby, and their relationship and strange conversations. And "Orpheus" is about a girl's relationship with a photographer while reminiscing about a dead friend named Jacaranda. All of the stories are easy to read and let you get lost in their liquid language. You'll be glad you read it if you do.
