My favorite character here is a relative of Tomie -- she lives in bayou country not far from the narrator's Texas town, and has generational (and apparently spiritual) ties with a nearly mythic Louisiana personage. This family connection serves as a backdrop to how the paranormal comes into play. Early hints of a supernatural theme come additionally from another of Tomie's peers -- Opal Dawn – who, with seeming reluctance, accepts his and Sarifena's friendship.
My only critique: I noticed two brief instances of an undoubtedly accidental switch from first-person perspective to third-person. Depictions of bullying, enabled by social status, were painful for me to read, yet these were integral to the story and its theme of vengeance's heavy price. Interestingly, the novel offered two endings; the original is my favorite, yet I appreciated how the second provided a character angle that I would've otherwise not picked up.
Doll addresses in fictional format what extremes kids may do in abusive peer pressure environments. It explores the attitudes of those involved whether they appear to be on the receiving end or not.
Miracle lays out a well-written story, showing the growth of each character. She reveals their true natures in turns and twists throughout the book.
While I could go on and give you details of the story, read the sample and decide for yourself. The author does have two endings and ask the reader to choose which one they like the most. I prefer the first. If you like great reads, this one is a must.
And by the way, after you read her book, please leave a review. She will thank you for it.
This book has a sweet, coming of age story, mixed in with some really creepy horror scenes. Magic, voodoo, witches & warlocks...that is just a taste of what you'll see in this engaging tale. The ending had a twist I certainly did not see coming, and I would love to see a sequel from the author in the future!
Love, revenge, betrayal, horror, magic...what are you waiting for? Buy this book!!! The phrase on the front couldn't be more true: Be careful what you wish for!
As a "New Orleanor," I was thrilled to learn that the main character, Tomie, is the cousin of Lisette a descendant of New Orleans Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau. This book was a lot of fun to read and I think teens will enjoy it.

This may be an ok book to read for a 14y/o, but definitely not something one would want to read more than once.
Having said that, I think the author has good potential and needs to concentrate on improving her writing skills
