Ghost by Jason Reynolds, 181 pages
is good at two things for sure; running and causing trouble. His goal is
to be a basketball star but when a local coach sees him run he starts running
with the track team, under the condition that he stays out of trouble in
school. But staying out of trouble is hard and even though Ghost wants to
run, he isn't sure he can keep up his end of the bargain. As he begins to
make friends with his teammates he's more determined to stay out of trouble and
with a little help from his friends and his coach, he just may make it.
This was a good read for kids who like realistic fiction, especially kids who
also like sports books.
