Fabulous Friday Giveaway: Ruined by Paula Morris

ruined_cover-2 I am lucky to have five copies of this book to give away to those who comment on this post. Contest is only open to those with US addresses (sorry). Contest will run through Saturday the 10th at midnight (CST).

SYNOPSIS

When Rebecca Brown goes to New Orleans to stay with her voodoo-obsessed aunt, she finds the beautiful city haunted by the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Rebecca is also startled to discover a haunting of a different kind: near a graveyard one night, amid the Spanish moss and beneath the moonlight, she meets a ghost girl named Lisette, who has been dead for 150 years. Lisette helps Rebecca unearth an ancient mystery in her aunt’s house, along with some troubling historical truths. Meanwhile, Rebecca must juggle adjusting to her snooty new prep school, developing a serious crush on a handsome boy, and dealing with an elite group of popular girls who may be linked to the ghostly mystery themselves.

  4. I’ve only been to New Orleans once (before the hurricane) and I loved wandering the Garden District. This book gives me a chill when I think about my time down there. Please enter me!
