Unbroken by Paula Morris, A Ruined Novel

Rebecca Brown returns to New Orleans where in the previous year she had befriended a ghost, helped to set her free and in the process a girl is killed by a falling stone in the cemetery.   Needless to say she is not all that thrilled about returning but as with all teenage novels there is this boy....

Before she even leaves New York a ghost approaches her for help in New Orleans where he was killed.  Upon arrival he appears to her again to extract a promise of help.

Several twist with the usual danger and rescue of a paranormal young teen book. A fun read that will really appeal to the middle school reader.

Written In My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander 8

Oh My Goodness!  When you finish a book, yell at the author then have to immediately talk to someone else that has read it about it you know it is good!
A few times I had to step away as the tension was so strong it was making me feel tired.  Other times I read so late at night I dreamed of Claire and Jamie.
Mrs. Gabaldon wraps things up then hangs us over a cliff, I hope she writes fast on the next one.
