Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The boy finds a lover and escapes to a land that will allow him to be himself.

The different voodoo terms are all real and contemporary.

Con: It’s all too easy. He gets everything he wants with no serious effort and no real cost.

He seems to be a little young to be doing this.
