Ghosting by Keith Gray
15 year old Nat narrates this story about how he and his 17 year old sister Sandy use skills they learned from their mother to conduct “Ghosting” sessions, like séances. Since their mother died, this is how they make a living. What their clients don’t know is everything Sandy and Nat do is fake, carefully rehearsed and carried out to appear real. A man from one of their sessions hires them for a private session at his house, which is eerily empty, as if no one lives there. They suspect he’s trying to catch their tricks, but Sandy actually senses something horrible. I can’t tell any more about the plot without giving away the whole story. I couldn’t stop reading, because I really wanted to know what would happen next!
If you like stories filled with creepiness, Ghosting is for you! This book is a fast read; you will find it in the library’s Emerging Readers section, under the window in the instructional alcove.
