The plot: Dangerous Angels is actually a compilation of Block's first few short novels, which, together, are more commonly referred to as the Weetzie Bat books. We begin with Weetzie Bat, a whimsical teen living a fairy tale-like life in L.A. The following stories talk about her friends and children. Block is famous for mixing the dark and dangerous with dreamy, sugar-coated imagery.
How it changed you: Made you want to move to Los Angeles, get a house in the Hills, braid your hair with feathers, ride in vintage convertibles, have gay best friends.
Sex aka the best part: Yes, but it's generally treated in a different, less obvious/graphic ways than typical teen sex. It's often talked about in terms of gender, culture (as a darker thing that can kill you), or as a weird magical connection to someone. Although one book does get quite dark.
