GHOST, by Jason Reynolds

ghost

The story: Ghost comes out of nowhere to challenge the fastest runner on the team. Everyone’s amazed when he turns out to be fast–really fast. Coach wants him on the track team, but there’s more chasing Ghost than just the other runners: mostly, his own bad choices. Can he outrun his past and find a better path to the kid he wants to be?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’re a kid who likes sports stories, or one who wants to believe that poverty and bad choices don’t have to define who you are forever, take a look at Ghost!
