Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Autumn 2009 Kids' Indie Next List
“As Rebecca grudgingly leaves her home in New York City to attend school in New Orleans, she dreads being stuck living with her Aunt Claudia, a fortuneteller. When Rebecca follows some of her schoolmates into a graveyard to spy on them one night, she gets sucked into a voodoo curse. Filled with the ambiance of New Orleans, this is a great read for anyone who loves ghost stories.”
-- Sharon Carey, Beaverdale Books, Des Moines, IA


Description

Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans, where she comes to spend the year while her dad is traveling. She's staying in a creepy old house with her aunt. And at the snooty prep school, the filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey seems to give Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda. Then one night, in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend. Sweet, mysterious Lisette is eager to talk to Rebecca, and to show her the nooks and crannies of the city. There's just one catch: Lisette is a ghost. A ghost with a deep, dark secret, and a serious score to settle. As Rebecca learns more from her ghost friend -- and as she slowly learns to trust Anton Grey -- she also uncovers startling truths about her own history. Will Rebecca be able to right the wrongs of the past, or has everything been ruined beyond repair?
