This book is ok, I have to say. But I didn't really like, but since I realized I haven't done any reviews on books I don't like I decided to do it. So here ya go. This book is by Paula Morris.
The last thing on Rebecca's mind was to go to New Orleans and live with her strange aunt, its not that she was strange really, she was just obsessed with voodoo. Rebecca's aunt warns her not to go into the cemetery outside their house, but when your told not to do something, well, its really tempting to go and do it. So Rebecca sneaks out one night and see's a girl who helps her avoid the group of popular people who were hanging out in the cemetery. Soon Rebecca finds out that the girl, Lisette, wasn't just any girl, she was a ghost. Rebecca soon goes out to the cemetery to see Lisette and listens to her story. Then she finds out about Lisette's death and what it has to do with one of the most popular girls at school. I read this book a while ago so I don't really remember much more, but this was an ok book like I said.
What annoyed me most was that the book was written in third person. I don't know why that bothered me but it did, I have read very good books in 3rd person like The Body Finder and Wings, but this one just didn't appeal to me very well. Other than that I found the book kind of boring until the very end when everything was solved, so I kind of forced myself to finish it thinking, It's going to get better, I guess it did, but only in the very end.

Stars: 2.5
Status: If you wanna read it


I didn't really think I would like this book. I mean, come one, faeries? Totally childish. But boy was I wrong, I really really really loved this book! So much that I read it in one day, something I never do with books because I always get bored with them. But this book was amazing! The author of it is Aprilynne Pike and she also has the 3rd book in the series coming out in a couple months.
Laurel is a new student in Crecent City, she hated it. Most of it at least, until a guy walks up to her and introduces himself. That's when everything starts. Laurel becomes better and better friends with the guy, David, and soon she wonders if they're something even more. Then she notices a strange bump on her back, the next week the bump is gone but it is replaced by petals. That's right, huge giant petals that grow out of her back. Once she figures this out she goes back to her old house and into the land that her mother wants to sell, there she meets Tamani, who develops some feelings for her. Tamani tells her who she really is, or more, what she is. Laurel finds out some shocking secrets and with the help of David, go on an adventure trying to save her mother's land. I can't tell you more, it would give away too much. But as stupid as this sounds, YOU HAVE TO READ IT
I really liked David, he was really nice. And I liked Laurel too, I can't really tell you why but I liked everyone in this story. It was just that good. Anyways, this amazing amazing book is a MUST MUST read because it will make you want more. I swear I hated it when I finished it because I didn't want it to end, that's how good it was.
Stars: 5 out of 5
