My review of Something Like Voodoo, a YA Paranormal Romance by Rebecca Hamilton
A definite 5 star read!
Unique, engaging, and so much more than I expected! Something like Voodoo is filled with magic, and well, voodoo!
In this well-written young adult novel, Hamilton weaves together an illusion of magic, voodoo, and evil hexes for the high school students in a small suburban town.
Emily Bishop finds herself unwittingly drawn in to save Noah Caldwell from strange things neither he, nor she, quite yet understand. Emily finds more than she ever expected connects her 'gift' with ancestors of herself and Noah, the 'It Girls,' and their leader Sarah, whom, it seems, is out to destroy Emily by whatever means necessary.
Without giving spoilers, may I just say this thrilling read packs so much into one book! The author has clearly done her research and flawlessly executed a chilling but magical read for book lovers both young adult and older. Well done!

A teen girl with the ability to predict deaths through her drawings shouldn't need to lie constantly to make her life sound interesting. But that doesn't stop Emily from spinning stories faster than she can keep up.
After transferring to a new school, Emily's 'dull' life is shaken by the appearance of a boy who seems unfazed by her far-fetched stories. A too-handsome-for-his-own-good senior, Noah has some secrets of his own. He needs Emily's special gift to save him from Sarah, queen bee of the school's It Girls, whose own supernatural abilities have forced him into a life of silence and solitude.
But when Emily tries to free him from Sarah's voodoo curse, things go belly up, landing Emily on Sarah's hit list. Soon, Emily and Noah are on a collision course with the It Girls, leading to a shocking revelation that ties them together in unimaginable ways. If their powers remain unchecked, this teenage popularity contest could spell the death of them all ...
Romantically charged and eerily chilling, Something Like Voodoo weighs the choice of saving your life versus fighting for a life worth saving. This paranormal romance will put a spell on you.
