Think about it. This could be your lucky break.

See a Problem?

Social services could take you and place you with, like, some family in the country or something. You could have a dog, and your own room, and food, and I bet the people would be, like, so nice, just really nice people who want to save teenage girls from working at the dump. Sophie joined the fantasy. Ella wrinkled her nose.

Maybe I could get adopted by Harvard professors. A dog. She imagined herself curled up in a sunny room with a smart dog gazing at her lovingly while she read a really difficult book that she totally understood. Like, put firecrackers up their butts or something. Sophie looked uneasily at her friend. You told me she passed herself out when she was our age.

And look at her! There was no way to deny it. She felt a wimpy look settle across her face, part a squirmy sort of fear, part shame at the fear, with a tinge of a plea for mercy from her merciless friend.

KIRKUS REVIEW

Sophie recalled the dreamy visions and the sweet body-buzz. She did think it was fun. But passing out felt linked now with those strange feelings and visions, and that desperate need for salt. When she had fixed her bowl of cereal earlier that evening, after her mother had drifted into the living room, Sophie had swiped at the fat, round salt canister in the cupboard and plucked out the spout, sending a fall of the stuff into her Cheerios.

But it had been delicious. Come on, why did you even want me to meet you out here, if not to play pass-out? Smaller bits of glass sparkled in the light and reminded Sophie of the recycling shack, of Angel and the tumbler and the bright bins of glass, and she found herself actually excited to return. With her knees in the dirt Ella bent her head and began her huffing and puffing. When she flung herself up Sophie tensed behind her, waiting for her body to begin its slump, to catch her and lay her gently on the ground.

She did.

Questions?

She pushed some weeds aside so that they framed her face. Ella, she realized, was beautiful. Ella thought about it, then shrugged in the dirt. Maybe a dog.

Yeah, a dog, a big sweet dog. The thing about playing pass-out was it felt so nice to be next to whatever was in your dream. Once Sophie had gone under and had a vision of a kitchen table.

She came out of it filled with a tender, almost mystical affection for the furniture. It was the weirdest thing. But Sophie could see her friend getting a little hooked on the dream dog. That would for sure be unbearable. Mermaid in Chelsea Creek by Michelle Tea is one such book. Sure, it's got familiar YA tropes, but the pieces here are not always put together in a familiar way.

In the broken- down town of Chelsea, Massachusetts, everyone knows the story about the girl who. Everyone in the broken-down town of Chelsea, Massachussetts, has a story too worn to repeat.

The culturation of the mythology didn't really seem to inform anything in the narrative, and could have been swapped out for any other mythology you might think of. Also, this definitely, definitely did not feel like it was or needed to be part of a trilogy.

This book itself had no arc, and didn't feel like it was contributing to a larger series arc. The actual conflict here is really ill defined outside the assertion that one character is "bad".

I adore Michelle Tea, my favourite of her books is Valencia so I was pretty excited about reading this, the first in a young adult series. I was sort of expecting more of the same Tea that I love, but this is pretty different to her other books and reminded me of Francesca Lia Block.

It's a gritty ish urban fantasy novel with talking pigeons and magic and the ability to get into peoples hearts to find out what they are feeling. I really enjoyed it, and loved bits like this: "It was a piece of glass, I adore Michelle Tea, my favourite of her books is Valencia so I was pretty excited about reading this, the first in a young adult series.

Despite a slow start, this book captured my attention with it's magical realism.

The plight young Sophie faces may not be a familiar one, yet as a girl on the cusp on young adulthood she is all to easy to relate to. The fantasy elements of this story were woven wonderfully with the pain and anguish of growing up. I can't wait to read more of this series - though waiting for the next instalment will be difficult.

From talking pigeons, a crusty old grandmother who lives at the city dump and sweet Angel, Sophie soon discovers her powers and what she is destined to do. Jan 22, Renata rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , fiction , ya. One of the reasons I picked it up was that Daniel Handler wrote a rave review of it, and that makes sense to me because I think Michelle Tea and Danielle Handler have somewhat similar styles, in that they are a bit wordy and pretentious but beautiful.

I love them both for it, but I can theoretically understand where some readers would find it to be a drawback.

Book Club: Mermaid in Chelsea Creek by Michelle Tea

I love that one of the protagonist Sophie's mentors is a kind, compassionate, and apparently trans woman. Is OCD in now? A few quotes: "I don't think I'm crazy. I think I was just hanging out underwater with this totally busted, sort of mean mermaid. The problem with feelings was, first you had one, which was generally bad enough.
