Welcome to Girl Goddess #9, a collection of nine stories about girls by the author of Weetzie Bat. Here in these pages are girl goddesses of every age and shape 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 elf that lives in her closet. One is a rock-star groupie, another loves dancing and reading peotry and having picnics in the backyard when the moon is full. Best best girlfriends, lovers gay and straight. Baby goddesses, singing goddesses, dancing goddesses, writing goddesses-all discovering that the world is not a simple place and that there is more than one way to live.
