When your best friend is just a tiny bit psychotic, you should never actually believe him when he says, "Trust me. This is gonna be awesome."

Of course, you probably wouldn't believe a voodoo doll could work either. Or that it could cause someone's leg to blow clean off with one quick prick. But I've seen it. It can happen.

And when there's suddenly a doll of YOU floating around out there—a doll that could be snatched by a Rottweiler and torn to shreds, or a gang of thugs ready to torch it, or any random family of cannibals (really, do you need the danger here spelled out for you?)—well, you know that's just gonna be a really bad day ...

This book was very surprising. I didn't expect to like it at all. Normally I like my books heavy with romance, but even without that here, I still enjoyed this. 

It's unlike every other Young Adult book out there. So if you're looking for something SO different, you look no further than Jeff Strand's A BAD DAY FOR VOODOO.

The characters were all very realistic (as they do exactly what teenagers do and say) and not to mention likable. Even though sometimes you want to smack them upside the head for doing things quite immature and selfish. 

This book is about voodoos (obviously). And it's all very interesting since I haven't read a book about them before. All I can say is that when before I would love to have a voodoo doll and do some voodoo magic on my enemies (God knows I've got A lot of 'em!), but after reading the book, well not so much. 

If you're looking for a fun and unique read, I suggest picking up A BAD DAY FOR VOODOO.
