Pack a picnic supper to eat while Ms. Montana reads aloud from Ghost by Jason Reynolds each week! Released in 2016, Ghost is a National Book Award Finalist and a selection for 2017 TLA Lone Star Reading List. Perfect for those who like books about sports and friendship, or fans of Kwame Alexander’s Crossover series.
From the publisher: Running. That’s all Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) has ever known. But Ghost has been running for the wrong reasons—it all started with running away from his father, who, when Ghost was a very little boy, chased him and his mother through their apartment, then down the street, with a loaded gun, aiming to kill. Since then, Ghost has been the one causing problems—and running away from them—until he meets Coach, an ex-Olympic Medalist who sees something in Ghost: crazy natural talent. If Ghost can stay on track, literally and figuratively, he could be the best sprinter in the city. Can Ghost harness his raw talent for speed, or will his past finally catch up to him?
Common Sense Media recommends Ghost for ages 10 and up. Read their full review here.
