    Amanda lives in Canada and they are taking a school trip to New Mexico to visit the Taos area.  She and her classmates are excited to see the historical sites and buy some trinkets to take home.  Now if her roommate would just quit thinking she's seeing ghosts, all would be well.

    Central Avenue Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

    I live in New Mexico and I don't see ghosts, but I can hear them.  I've heard soldiers talking at an old deserted fort and Indians drumming and dances right below some petroglyphs.  I don't really believe in them but how can you ignore what you can hear?

    In this story, Amanda's friend Cleo sees a young girl.  She's afraid to be in rooms where ghosts are rumored to be around.  And she ends up spooking Amanda, too.

    When a wind knocks Amanda into a cemetery, she's scared.  The man who yells at her for trespassing isn't pleasant either.  Suddenly, it seems Amanda is in trouble everywhere.  When Amanda and Caleb find bones in one of the forbidden buildings, it gets even more eerie.  

    This visit to New Mexico is well documented and shows some of the legends of the Land of Enchantment.  You feel like you visited the facilities the children did.  You also find out some of the history of people there.

    Learn about New Mexico in the comfort of your favorite chair and you won't have to worry about ghosts visiting you...
