      Fifteen years ago HarperCollins launched the phenomenal Weetzie Bat series of young adult novels, but in this latest installment Francesca Lia Block follows her charming and lovable Weetzie through a life-altering journey, facing adult problems, yet still living in the fairy tale land of fawns, angels, and mermaids where anything is possible, even true love. Where were the kisses, Weetzie Bat wondered? And so begins Weetzie-s magical journey of discovery. Turning 40 and stuck in a marriage gone stale, one day she packs up and leaves her husband Max, the same secret agent lover man who was once the other half of a passionate relationship. She stays at an enchanted pink hotel, where she meets an otherworldy cast of characters, among them a blue-skinned receptionist, an invisible cleaning lady, a seductive room service clerk, and a sushi-eating mermaid who gives her a kiss that sets the wheel of self-discovery in motion. Block invests every scene with equal shots of magic and realism, rendering her heroine and supporting players in vivid detail. With Necklace of Kisses the fans that have grown up with Weetzie Bat will be able to catch up with her in adulthood and find that life is still no less trying and no less wonderful.
