it was amazing

Bayou Myth is definitely a page turner! I literally sat down and read this in two sittings (and the only reason it wasn't one was because it was 4 in morning before I forced myself to go to bed!). Ms. Loesch creates a unique world full of magic and myth that had me completely captivated. The main character Joan was such an interesting and relatable character and Ms. Loesch gives her such a strong voice. She created a kick-ass girl who can take care of herself. It brings me back to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" days, where she saves everyone and doesn't need to be saved. The book is fast-paced and Ms. Loesch obviously put a lot of research into the study of voodoo. It felt very real and natural to the characters and plot. As a YA book, it was the perfect combination of romance, teen drama, horror and action. I seriously was very creeped out by a few moments (did I mention I stayed up until 4? Lol). Overall, this was a fantastic read and I highly recommend it!
