From the Publisher:
From a star YA author?an adult novel about a student, haunted by the disappearance of a friend, who must face the truth
 

The Elementals is on one level an intriguing coming-of-age novel about a young woman, Ariel Silverman, facing the challenges of her first years away at college in Berkeley, California, while her mother battles cancer at home in Los Angeles. But the book takes on deeper, stranger meanings when we realize that Ariel is haunted by the disappearance of her best friend, Jeni, who vanished without a trace a few years before, closing Ariel's heart and changing her forever.  Ariel wonders if she will ever be fully alive, until she meets three mysterious, beautiful and seductive young people living in a strange old house in the Berkeley hills.  Through them Ariel will unravel the mystery of her best friend's disappearance and face a chilling choice.

Author Bio
Francesca Lia Block
The daughter of a poet mother and a painter father, Francesca Lia Block wrote her first book, WEETZIE BAT, while still a student at the University of California-Berkley. Although she also writes nonfiction and adult erotica, Block is best known for her young adult novels--which she describes as "contemporary fairy tales with an edge." Indeed, although written in a dreamy style, Block's characters in such books as THE HANGED MAN, WITCH BABY, VIOLET & CLAIRE, and MISSING ANGEL JUAN deal with such thorny issues as AIDS, incest, and drug abuse.

Praise

"Block's fresh take on the coming-of-age story is a compelling and quick read, and her dark renderings of familiar college types will keep readers engaged and guessing as the pages fly by." 08/06/2012
