Runied by Paula Morris
When Rebecca Brown's father must travel to China for work, she is sent to live with her Aunt Claudia in the Garden District of New Orleans. Rebecca has only met Claudia and her daughter, Aurelia, once before. As soon as Rebecca arrives, she discovers that Aunt Claudia's home is very different from her own; it is finished in an eclectic style. Across the street is Lafayette Cemetary, a place Claudia warns Rebecca to never enter. Rebecca must attend a prep school where all the wealthy families send their kids. She quickly learns that the rich kids only hang out with each other, and she is not welcomed by them. One night she sees Anton Grey and his popular friends entering the cemetary late at night, so she follows them in. While in the cemetary, she meets Lisette, a ghost who was murdered back in 1853 who carries a secret about a tragic event. Rebecca wants to help Lisette. Little does she know, she may become more involved in the tragedy than she expected. As the story continues, Rebecca learns more about Anton Grey, his rich friends, Lisette's past, and her connection to it all.
This was a great ghost story. I highly recommend reading it.
