Title: Blue Bottle Tree Author: Beaird Glover Release Date: Oct. 24th, 2017
There’s no such thing as Voodoo. At least, that’s what most of the Baptists
in Bellin tell themselves. But Seven LaVey knows better.
a small rural town just outside of Nashville, Voodoo conjures and
curses simmer and seethe under the noses of the many who will never
know. Seventeen-year-old Seven romanticizes about
the meaning of life while held captive as a zombie under the shell of a
kiddie pool. He's counting on the strength - and maybe even love - of a
certain redheaded clarinet player to save him. But will she?
with betrayal and revenge, two families struggle with a curse that
stretches back to Queen of the Voodoos Marie Laveau in this contemporary
Southern Gothic adventure. Prepare
for a wildly original twist on the paranormal.
