A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now, she has returned to this haunting city. She is hoping to see handsome Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart.

She is not expecting to see a ghost: a troubled blue-eyed boy who insists only Rebecca can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?

--- - ! "From UNBROKEN: A RUINED NOVEL:

\t\"I saw you with her,\" the boy said again, a desperate edge to his voice. Rebecca's heart thudded. She didn't know how to speak anymore, or what to say.
\tNobody could have seen her that day , because when Rebecca held Lisette's hand, she disappeared from view. She was invisible, just as Lisette was invisible to other people. They could walk through the crowded streets of the city, unseen and undetected by anyone.
\tAnyone, that is, except other ghosts."
