Imagine a New York City teenager being sent to live in New Orleans, having approximately a week's notice. Oh, and she's being sent to live with an "aunt" read lifetime friend of the family. Rebecca Brown didn't have to imagine she was going to have to live it. Her mother was dead, long ago when she was a baby. Her father and she happily made their way in New York City, until now when her father was assigned work in China, and felt that it was too long a time period for Rebecca to be on her own. Now she was miserable, heading to an entirely different world, alone, for a full school year.

From official release/information:

Product Description: 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?
