An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ the Wisp explores the spooky world of a cemetery island in the southern swamps that time has passed by, its creepy cast of characters, and an old biological supply company; all through the eyes of a teenage girl. Along the way she discovers Hoodoo (a uniquely American magical practice), and delves deeply into it when mysterious happenings out in the swamp begin to threaten those on the island. The story features many authentic Hoodoo practices. This is the first self-contained story featuring Aurora and her pet raccoon Missy solving mysteries steeped in southern ghost stories.
