Thirteen-year-old Rodney Becker has found the perfect cure for stage fright. Voodoo!

Armed with the stolen finger bones of a dead blues guitar player and a mishmash of voodoo spells from the Internet, he and his best friend enter a graveyard at midnight to perform their ritual. Now, all that stands in his way of winning a local guitar competition is the power of return—a side effect of the voodoo that spells disaster for Rodney

His cure has become a curse. How else can he explain jamming his finger so bad he can’t hold a guitar pick, his part-time dad taking his guitar, and his mom getting into an accident that could have taken her life? How much is Rodney willing to risk achieving his dream of being a guitar legend?
