UNBROKEN: A Ruined Novel by Paula Morris. New York:  Point/Scholastic Press., 2013.  291p.  978-0-545-41641-2;  hc.,  $17.99.    Gr.6 & up   YAF
Morris follows her successful first book in the Ruined series, Dark Soul, with satisfying second entry. New Yorker, Rebecca, returns to New Orleans with her father and best friend Ling. On her last visit to New Orleans, she narrowly escaped a harrowing death in an old cemetery. A century old mystery involving a locket, ghosts who speak to Rebecca, her growing attraction to handsome Anton are a recipe that will attract and temporarily satiate teen readers who have an appetite for mysteries and the supernatural, until the next installment in the series.
