      Bad Mojo might have been written for young readers, but I’ve never let that sort of thing deter me from enjoying a good book. A combination of humour, of tragedy and of growing up. This was an incredible book. I loved it.

    2. Jennifer on said:

      Great middle grade adventure story for boys and girls. Bobby's life is gritty, and Hurricane Katrina is depicted with real-life seriousness, but the humor and the heart in this story will carry the reader through to a very satisfying conclusion.

      I was able to receive this via Giveaways. It is a good story covering the hurricane but in some parts sensitive children might find it too dark. Overall a good story

      Hi! Eva Blackstone here. I entered my upper middle grade novel, Bad Mojo, in the 2016 Benjamin Franklin Awards and I'm excited to share with you some of the feedback I received:"Highly suspenseful with vivid language appropriate for the genre. Brilliant character development." ~2016 Benjamin Franklin Award Judge"Humor and heart. Humor and tragedy. It's not an easy task to keep them in balance, let alone being able to tell a story that carries well to the end."~ 2016 Benjamin Franklin Award Judge [...]

      I received this book as a giveaway. All I can say is I was very glad to come to the end of this book. It took me a really long time to finish because I just didn't enjoy reading it. The main character thinks that he is cursed, but he just came from an unfortunate family situation and has a bad temper.
