Reynolds, Jason. Ghost.

“Ghost” Cranshaw has been running for three years, ever since the night his father shot a gun at him and his mother. One day, while watching a track practice, he decides to crash a race. Impressed, the coach offers him a spot on the team, with one condition: if Ghost can stop getting into fights at middle school, he can run for the Defenders.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it interesting of how he got into running. I really enjoyed the theme and I thought it was good that Ghost managed to stop getting into fights so that he could run. I found it was humorous enough for me because I know for a fact that there were some very funny parts during this book. Its also a pretty quick read so if you don’t like long books than this is a good one.

    Ghost is a good book. You will not want to put it down. Or at least in my case, I couldn’t. It has a lot of action and drama. In the book the main character Castle is called Ghost because he can run so fast. He had a dad that went out to drink at bars and would come home and beat on him and his mom. One night Castle and his mom decided to run away and call the cops. His dad went to jail for his crime. I recommend this book for people that like short books and for 4th thru 6th grades. It was a great book. Awesome writing! BYE!
