Ghost wants to be the fastest sprinter on his elite middle school track team, but his past is slowing him down in this first electrifying novel in a new series from Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award–winning author Jason Reynolds.
Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team—a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other, but to themselves.
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?

I read this book in my fifth grade class in March 2017 and it was amazing I read it multiple times I give this book 5✨⭐️🌟
When I started reading this book it was kind of boring, but the only reason I keep going was because the author made it so I could picture each character perfectly. After that everything was amazing, it was like the author described every detail and made me feel like I was in the book like I was the boy. Like I was ghost. I got hooked in the end of the book. I almost cried because the author kept me hooked on this book and ended it so quickly. But then I realized that it was probably to let the reader think. Think, if that were me would I win? Should I continue this story in my mind. This book was perfect and is now one of my favorite books I highly recommend this book to any readers out there because I promise you. It's worth it! 😄😄😄
Awesome book! I can just imagine being there with ghost it is a very exciting book
