"Zombies and their controlling bokors, the charms and protective spells of voodoo, and the occult all mix in with every day life for your penpal in New Orleans. Your life in sleepy Maine is much different, and you love your penpal's spine-tingling tales. A new girl shows up at your school who reminds you of your penpal.
