When her dad goes to China on business, Rebecca is forced to leave her home in New York to go live with her Aunt Claudia in New Orleans who reads tarot cards for a living. At the snooty prep school Rebecca is attending, a pack of wealthy girls treat her as though she doesn’t exist. While walking through a cemetery one night, Rebecca meets a very unexpected friend named Lisette. With Mardi Gras right around the corner, Rebecca obtains some very scary information about Lisette that makes Rebecca, and the very- wealthy Helena Bowman, fear for their lives.
Ruined is a ghost story with a hint of mystery and murder geared towards young adults. The only problem is that Ruined can be very confusing at times. Other than that, it has a great plot.
