Soul of Jubie Walker by D. Davidson and R. Marcano is a historical fiction novel with paranormal undertones. Fifteen-year-old Jubie Walker, a history buff, finds himself plagued by visions of American forces fighting the Japanese Imperial Army in the Pacific during World War II in 1942. Jubie constantly sees himself through the eyes of Sergeant Reese Cochran as he battles in the jungles of the Philippines alongside Corporal Titus Long. After conversing with Dr. Elizabeth Thatcher, a skeptic, the Walker family slowly becomes convinced that their son is the reincarnation of Sergeant Reese Cochran, whose corporeal form seems to want something from Jubie. As his visions start affecting his social life, all Jubie wants is to get rid of them. He must now travel to the Philippines to seek the truth and set Cochran's spirit free.

Authors D. Davidson and R. Marcano spin an enthralling tale with underlying themes of reincarnation that keep you hooked throughout the pages. The narrative is well-paced, focusing on a fifteen-year-old teenager who struggles with events far beyond his control while navigating friends, family, and first love. I found the premise authentic and uniquely imaginative. The characters were genuine, and Jubie's relationships with his friends and family while dealing with his condition is the primary bedrock of the narrative. I found myself particularly invested in Jubie's relationship with Sam. The unexpected turns of the plot keep you immersed in the story and turning the pages with eager anticipation of what's to come. If you're interested in historical fiction with a unique twist, Soul of Jubie Walker is the book for you.
