Gr 3 Up—After her grandmother passes away, Jez and her twin brother, Jay, get the opportunity to learn the root
magic that their family is famous for. These lessons come in handy as Jez is faced with opposition in many forms,
from the racist deputy who harasses her family to the dangerous spirits that live nearby. This story's focus on family
traditions, friendship, and being true to oneself will both delight and inspire.

Starts very slow. So slow that I thought about DNFing it but didn’t, and I’m glad that I finished it. It picks up towards the end and finishes strong. I feel it’s an important story to tell, but it may lose some people because the plot doesn’t show up until the end of the book.

Lots of fascinating information about root magic, but much of the book read like an instruction manual rather than a narrative.

This collection of short stories is billed as “Southern Gothic Horror” and I will attest that the description is perfect. They range from strange to bizarre and from freakish to aberrant. I am not a fan of horror, so it is no surprise that some of these were just too far over the top for my tastes, but more than feeling horror, I felt an urge to laugh. They were so improbable, indeed impossible, that they didn’t stir any fear; I would say they were campy.

There were several that were exceptionally well done. Hag Ride, Path of the War Chief, and The Choking Kind were the most appealing to me. The only lesson I would take from the collection is beware of strong women; doesn’t pay to cross them.… (mais)
