Rebecca Brown is going to New Orleans for the year--while her dad goes to China. What a girl from New York will do in New Orleans, Rebecca doesn't know. It isn't what she expected either. For one, as an outsider, no one wants to talk to her besides her 'cousin' at school. She's attending an all-girl school for another. And she meets a ghost in the cemetery across the street from her aunt's house.
But Rebecca's life is getting a little more complicated every day. A boy on her street seems to like her, but he's got an agenda. Lisette, the ghost, has a darker side Rebecca isn't sure she wants to know about. And Rebecca learns there are skeletons in her own family that are about to change or end her life.
Well-written and engrossing. The scenes in New Orleans are well-developed and vivid. The ending is foreshadowed throughout the book--but I was so distracted by what was going on, I didn't put things together until almost the end.
