Welcome back to New Orleans.
Where the streets swirl with jazz and beauty.
Where the houses breathe with ghosts.
A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now she has returned to this haunting city. She is looking forward to seeing Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart.
But she also meets a ghost: a troubled boy who insists only she can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?

This is the second book in the Ruined duology, I read Ruined about two years ago and fell in love. Ruined takes place in New Orleans and its a YA Paranormal, my love for New Orleans started because of this book. Ruined is about a girl name Rebecca who has to go live with her aunt and cousin in New Orleans while her dad is away on business. Of course Rebecca being a typical teenager doesn’t want to go or start a new school. The story goes on and you meet a ghost name Lisette and Rebecca has to help her. It’s a great paranormal mystery and the author really brings New Orleans alive with her writing. The second book is Unbroken and Rebecca is back in New Orleans for her Spring break with her best friend Ling. Rebecca now has a special love for New Orleans and all the ghosts. You meet a new ghost name frank, who needs Rebecca’s help. You get to meet some great new characters and some old ones from the first. I love learning more about the community Treme and the rich history it has. This story is a little spookier in my opinion, there is one evil spirit who really scared me :(. I truly love this duology and hope it becomes more popular. Ms. Morris paints a beautiful picture of New Orleans and it’s culture, and really make the spirits of the past come alive. I hope she will write more books like this and I will be checking out her other books! Find Ruined and Unbroken on Goodreads.
