Hoodoo by Walter Ben Hare is a fascinating tale that immerses readers in the world of Southern folklore and superstition. The story follows the young protagonist as he learns about the mysterious practice of hoodoo, a form of African American folk magic.

The author does a superb job of bringing the setting to life, making the reader feel as though they are walking the streets of a small Southern town alongside the characters. The incorporation of hoodoo practices adds a unique element to the story, giving readers a glimpse into a world that is often shrouded in mystery.

Overall, Hoodoo is a captivating read that blends elements of mystery, magic, and coming-of-age themes. The characters are well-developed and the plot keeps readers engaged from start to finish. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a captivating and immersive read.
