In “Blues Bones”, set in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, 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, Rodney and his best friend enter a graveyard at midnight to perform their ritual. What seems like a great idea at the time backfires into disaster! How much is Rodney willing to risk to achieve his dream of being a guitar legend?
