Hello and happy Friday! I have some awesome news…I can giveaway a copy of Ruined by Paula Morris to five lucky winners.
In case you haven’t already heard about the book, here’s the synopsis:
When Rebecca Brown goes to New Orleans to stay with her voodoo-obsessed aunt, she finds the beautiful city haunted by the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Rebecca is also startled to discover a haunting of a different kind: near a graveyard one night, amid the Spanish moss and beneath the moonlight, she meets a ghost girl named Lisette, who has been dead for 150 years. Lisette helps Rebecca unearth an ancient mystery in her aunt’s house, along with some troubling historical truths. Meanwhile, Rebecca must juggle adjusting to her snooty new prep school, developing a serious crush on a handsome boy, and dealing with an elite group of popular girls who may be linked to the ghostly mystery themselves.
This is just in time for the Halloween season and a great opportunity for those of you participating in the R.I.P. IV challenge to expand your reading pool.
Before we get to the fun part (i.e. what you need to do to enter), we need to establish a few ground rules:
1. You must have a U.S. mailing address – no P.O. boxes (if you’re international, you’re welcome to enter if you have a friend in the U.S. who is willing to receive the book and forward it to you).
2. If you are under 13 years of age, you must have your parent’s permission to enter.
With that established, to enter, leave a comment on this post answering the question: Have you ever been to New Orleans? If so, what was your favorite part of the trip. If not, what would you most like to see if you were to visit. (And should you live in N.O., tell us what visitors should make it a point to see).
