Ronald L. Smith’s HOODOO was well regarded by Booklist:
Hoodoo’s first-person narrative, which flows beautifully, has an appealing natural cadence, punctuated with the tagline “if you didn’t know” whenever he describes something that might be unfamiliar to the reader. Through his protagonist, Smith demonstrates an eye for detail and a knack for evocative imagery as well as for telling a riveting story with a dollop of southern gothic appeal.

CLAYTON STONE, AT YOUR SERVICE by Ena Jones has a shiny Booklist review:
Meet Clayton Stone: average seventh-grade student, above-average lacrosse player. Set in the moneyed suburbs of Northern Virginia, this book combines family and school drama with Nancy Drew–style precocious sleuthing.” And “. . . most will recognize his conflicts as he tries to incorporate the responsibilities of his new secret life with his responsibilities to his team and friends. Hand to readers who loved Stuart Gibbs’ Spy School series.
