Finished Ghost by Jason Reynolds. I received a copy for review.
I’ve now read every Jason Reynolds book and that makes me sad.
In this one, Ghost is a mostly good kid. He gets into some trouble at school but nothing too serious. It’s just him and his mom after his dad got sent to prison for trying to kill them. (Not surprisingly, that’s messed him up a little.)
Ghost is a basketball player…until he discovers track. He’s never been trained but he is crazy fast. And between learning that he’s got a talent and being part of an actual team, things are as good as they’ve ever been…but how long til he messes it up?
I dare you to read this and not fall in love with Ghost. :)
