Publisher's Summary

A standout middle-grade adventure with a sassy, memorable heroine and a charming Southern feel, perfect for fans of Kate DiCamillo and Natalie Lloyd.

Twelve-year-old haunt huntress apprentice Evangeline Clement spends her days and nights studying the ways of folk magic, honing her monster-hunting skills while pursuing local bayou banshees and Johnny revenants.

With her animal familiar sure to make itself known any day now, the only thing left to do is prove to the council she has heart. Then she will finally be declared a true haunt huntress, worthy of following in the footsteps of her long line of female ancestors.

But when Evangeline and her grandmother are called to New Orleans to resolve an unusual case, she uncovers a secret that will shake her to the soles of her silver-tipped alligator-skin boots.

Set in the evocative Louisiana bayou and the vibrant streets of New Orleans, Evangeline of the Bayou is a tale of loyalty and determination, the powerful bonds of friendship and family, and the courage to trust your gut no matter how terrifying that might be.

Starts out ok, but spirals down

The story starts out alright promising a different setting and atmosphere. During the course of the story however, the protagonist becomes stubbornly opinionated. The two extremes a mystery can take are a know-it-all protagonist and on the other end the one who is avoiding to see- both equally annoying. This story is on the latter end to a degree of painfulness. The narrator isn't helping out falling more and more into a whining voice.
