Format: Paperback
Jordan Davis, along with his sisters, Celeste and Tiffany, and his baby brother, Danny, are going on a camping trip with their Aunt Desiree. It is the first time that they have gone camping and they are very excited. Alani M'echel Weathers, in The Horrible Huckleberry Hex, takes Danny and readers on an unforgettable adventure.

While in the forest, Jordan and his family come across an unusual Huckleberry tree with the sweetest berries. Jordan later learns that adults cannot eat the berries. You will not believe what happens next to Jordan and his family. I found this story to be very funny. I actually did not want the story to end. At the end of each chapter, the author included very simple recipes for berries that I am sure young readers will find fun to make.

Format: Paperback
Eleven-year-old Jordan Davis, jumps in Aunt Desiree's van to go on his first camping trip with his younger brother and twin sisters: Danny, Tiffany and Celeste. Little does he know that this camping trip will soon take a dangerous turn.

After setting up camp, the family hikes down a trail where they discover an ancient oak tree decorated with huge, juicy berries. Jordan soon discovers, however, that there might be more to those berries than them being huge and juicy. When he bumps into his friends, Kevin and Lei, they warn Jordan that those berries shouldn't be consumed, especially by adults.

Jordan and his friends must race against time as they try to save Jordan's siblings, and themselves, from an ancient curse that might doom them all!

Some of you might be too young to remember, but in the 90's, Nickeloden aired a show titled, "Are You Afraid of the Dark?". A group of friends belonging to 'The Midnight Society' would meet at a secret location in the woods and one member would share a scary story with the rest of the group. "The Horrible Huckleberry Hex" is similiar, except for young Jordan Davis and his family, it's not a story, it's really happening and it's frightening.

The entire story is told from Jordan's point of view and he is the only narrator, sharing the story and sometimes addressing the reader, which instantly connects that reader to the story. I would also compare it to "Goosebumps" by R.L. Stine because of its hair-raising action, and "Scooby Doo" deserves some mention because of the hilarious antics that this adventure creates. Weathers did an amazing job of combining all these elements, an ancient curse, and a diverse cast of characters to come up with a huge winner.

When dealing with ancient things, you must be careful; you may break it, or it could break you. "The Horrible Huckleberry Hex" follows young Jordan Davis on his first camping trip. He encounters a berry tree with supposedly cursed berries, and he soon finds his world is about to get a lot more complicated. "The Horrible Huckleberry Hex" a fun adventure for young readers, recommended.
