Cursed by Lizzy Ford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow -- as a fan of all things Lizzy Ford, this book was something completely different and unexpected. It's filled with a rich world that revolves around voodoo and some really in depth history. This might be the most original story I've read from this author.
The story itself follows Jayden and Addy. They are a sort of high school Romeo and Juliet. She's a scholarship girl who embraces her paranormal upbringing. He's a rich kid who laughs at his mom's "backwards" thinking and superstitious paranoia. It's a mix of love at first sight and destiny pushing these two adorable characters at one another. Jayden appears to be the more level headed one of the pair, being forced to grow up to take care of a house filled with 3 girls and trying to take care of his mother from afar. Addy is definitely the more emotionally charged one, whether she is flying off the handle about boys or school or life in general. Throw them together, and the sparks were just starting to fly in this book.
Of course, these two kids can't just get to know one another and overcome preconceived notions. Instead, there are hexes flying around, cursed families hurting their chances at finding love, and zombie sisters leaving creepy notes. Oh, and another boy that's hot and protective -- just to throw another wrench in the mix. This book was filled to the brim with mystery, history, and your good old fashioned teenage romance (with lots of voodoo twists). If any of the above interest you, I urge you to check out this great read.
