Friday Firsts: Ghosting by Keith Gray

What is Friday Firsts?

The first line can make or break a reader’s interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy.

  • Grab the book you are currently reading and open to the first page.
  • Write down the first sentence in the first paragraph. (If you want to use 2-3 sentences, that is okay but limit it to the very beginning.)
  • Create a blog post with this information. (Make sure to include the title & author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)
  • Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?
  • Come back to this blog post, hosted on and let me know where to find your Friday Firsts!

That’s it

Here is my Friday Firsts:

Ghosting by Keith Gray (ISBN: 9781842994900)

Everyone said my mother had a gift.

What does Nate’s mother have? What kind of gift? Also, did you notice that he said, “had” as in past tense? Does that mean she no longer has a gift or that she is no longer alive?  It certainly caught my attention.

Ghosting by Keith Gray was written the interest level of a teenager, with the reading level set appropriately for those suffering with dyslexia and other reading troubles.

Ghosting Book Summary:

Nate and his sister Sandy are fake mediums and don’t believe in the ghosts they pretend to see. That is, until the real ghosts of a serial killer’s victims appear with a message for Sandy.

Thank you for checking out my Friday Firsts.

Interesting meme! It’s true that a first (few) sentence(s) can make or break a book. Ghosting has a pretty good hook!
