Review: Ghost

Ghost Ghost by Jason Reynolds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this book! Castle Crenshaw, who goes by the nickname "Ghost", is always running. It all started when his father went kind of nuts, and began shooting at him and his mother. Now, his dad is in jail, his mom is working hard to take care of them, and Ghost has inadvertently joined a real track team. He had never, ever thought of running as a real sport. Coach tries to teach Ghost the finer points of being a runner, but with troubles in school, and making a really bad choice in a store, Ghost is fighting an uphill battle.
This book is well written, with real characters and situations that any middle school kid can relate to. I loved Coach, and totally loved Ghost.
