A girl is living in New Orleans with her eccentric aunt. She learns more about curses and New Orleans culture, and gets involved in a curse herself! This book has a spooky tone to it, which I really liked. I was so surprised at the ending! I would recommend if you like ghost stories and mysteries.

The author is a wonderful prose writer and her descriptions of New Orleans and Mardi Gras were very well done. However I was disappointed that plot wasn't airtight and the ghost wasn't eerie enough.

Mysterious, shocking, and amazing. This is a really good read, had to reread some parts over again because i wasn't sure i saw it right, that's how surprised i was.
