Ruined by Paula Morris- guest review steph

Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans, where she comes to spend the year while her dad is traveling. She's staying in a creepy old house with her aunt. And at the snooty prep school, the filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey seems to give Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda. Then one night, in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend. Sweet, mysterious Lisette is eager to talk to Rebecca, and to show her the nooks and crannies of the city. There's just one catch: Lisette is a ghost.   A ghost with a deep, dark secret, and a serious score to settle.   As Rebecca learns more from her ghost friend -- and as she slowly learns to trust Anton Grey -- she also uncovers startling truths about her own history. Will Rebecca be able to right the wrongs of the past, or has everything been ruined beyond repair?

my review
This book was fantastic. Don’t read this with the expectations of it being a thriller/ghost story that goes bump in the night because it’s the exact opposite. In a good way.
I loved every element in this book. We’re introduced to Rebecca, the main character, and every reader can relate easily to, as in some point of their life they haven’t fit in, and feel like an outsider, but we see Rebecca over come this. Rebecca makes friends with a girl called Lisette whom later in the friendship she realises that Lisette isn’t who she seems. (Don’t worry no spoilers here). Rebecca really overcomes a few obstacles and it tests her right to the limit.
This is a fun paranormal ghostly read. Full of twists and turns. Greatly written and very imaginative. Great job Paula Morris keep up the good work.
5/5 stars. Very well deserved a must read put it on the top of your TBR and wish list you wont be disappointed.
