Booktalking "Teen Spirit" by Francesca Lia Block


Julie's grandmother is dead, her mom doesn't understand her, and mom's hokey boyfriend Luke has a fish handshake.

Julie: half-Cherokee, living in Beverly Hills, CA, land of the sun. She is looking for something; perhaps magic can help her. She sees colored auras emanating around people; it's a skill to be developed in order to benefit her life, she is assured. Memories of the dead gnaw at her. She decides to complete a school project on the death theme in Emily Dickinson's poetry; her grandmother loved Emily Dickinson. Poetry and love.

Luckily, Julie has Clark: awesome natural foods guy cook who is right there for her when she needs somebody. Clark's consciousness is entwined with that of his twin; separate or together, can they find common ground? 

Going to rich girl Ally's party, warning her to stay away from Jason; the guy has a bad aura. Ally takes her advice.
