My Book  Beginnings is taken from PAPER GHOSTS by Julia Heaberlin:

 

"When she was twelve, my sister fell into a grave.  We were two children by ourselves in an empty cemetery, old stones jutting out of the ground in all directions.  The grass was dead, the same straw color as my sister's hair.  I remember the terrific flutter in my chest."

  2. Paper Ghosts sounds interesting. It certainly has an intriguing beginning. I'm featuring Falling Star by Terri Osburn - a romance from my review stack - this week. Happy reading!

  7. That's a creepy beginning and probably my worst fear in a cemetery! This does look like an interesting read.
