In the third installment of Dangerous Angels, Cherokee Bat and Witch Baby are teenagers. As the four friends in the book become lost, scared, and depressed, Cherokee creates magical clothing/ costume items to give them courage. As they grow older, they become corrupted from their childhood innocence. What will it take for them to re-exam their lives.

Parents most likely will not like the HUGELY sexual, drinking and drug content that takes place in most of the books. While other characters in Block's other books do many of the same things, it comes from a darker place, and is typically not the main character ( with the drug use). The sexual scenes are much more fleshed out in the book than with most of the others. I would recommend this for older teens, at least 17 years or older, who would understand the dynamics of the three different and "rebellious" actions.

Once again Block writes a nitty-gritty fairy tale. While I prefer her other stories such as " I was a Teenage Fairy"; " The Rose and the Beast" and "Psyche in a Dress". I am slowly enjoying the lives and tales of Weetzie's family. Although my favorite in the series takes place several years later with a 40 year old Weetzie in " A Necklace of Kisses" ( )

In Cherokee Bat and the Goat Guys the story arc in the Dangerous Angels series continues. What started with Weetzie Bat and Witch Baby continues in this book with the kids now teenagers and the adults in the household all out of town filming a movie in South America. Naturally Cherokee, Witch Baby, Raphael Chong Jah-Love and soon even Angel Juan, who makes a reappearance, run into trouble.

In a lot of ways I think this book is the most distinctly YA novel in the series. It focuses on the younger generation and problems unique to youth: self image, relationships, finding yourself, growing up.

At the start each of the four characters feels inadequate in one way or another. When they perform on stage they freeze up, when they try and initiate a relationship with someone else they feel rejected or aren't even brave enough to make the attempt, they feel bare, defenseless and powerless in an overbearing world. Coyote, a Native American friend of the family, steps in and offers to help Cherokee create gifts from nature (wings from feathers, goat pants from goat fur) to give each of the four teens outward strength from material things to solve inward problems. Naturally these objects are magical in nature, and naturally they unintentionally result in more problems then they solve.

The rest of the book covers the uncomfortable, dizzying and at times exhilarating descent into a world of late night jams and eventual sex, drugs, smoking, drinking and all night parties. This is where the book had most of its power. To show these things in both the positive (exhilarating, powerful, ego enhancing) and the negative (exhausting, damaging to health both mental and physical, losing control). This is something teens can see and relate to from a source they will listen to as well.

By the end of the book the teens must learn to pull their strength from inside themselves instead of their material trappings and learn how to help each other step back from the edge of self destruction. A powerful and poignant YA novel. Highly recommended. ( )
