In a weird way, increasing the number of racially diverse books on a given publisher’s release calendar isn’t hard if the publisher is dedicated to the notion.

Closely read the last few pages of Chapter 5 and the beginning of Chapter 6, making sure to pay attention to the author’s use of figurative language. This is the first book in the Track series: What conflicts do you think Ghost is going to face in the next book? Running is never something he plans to do, just like he never plans to get into altercations at school.They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other, but to themselves. I am posting this review late because I read it earlier in the year for a postal bookswap, which was hush hush until everyone had seen all the titles. It gave us a chance to talk about managing difficult feelings, how to react to bullying, and the consequences of the choices that we make.

Y'all probably won't catch me reviewing another middle grade novel, but just know, this book was an exception for a reason. 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.

After earning a BA in English from The University of Maryland, College Park, Jason Reynolds moved to Brooklyn, New York, where you can often find him walking the four blocks from the train to his apartment talking to himself. Not sure how he found out that was some kinda special talent, and I can’t even imagine how much snot be in those balloons, but hey, it’s a thing and Andrew’s the best at it. You may choose to create a book trailer for the novel or adapt a scene in the book into a screenplay and film it. What do you think Ghost means when he tells Coach, “I guess the only other person I’m really scared of, maybe . This book was just as good as I remembered and definitely one that needs to be in the hands in as many kids as possibly.

He’s got a load of anger inside that he doesn’t know how to deal with so he tends to take it out on others at school. His debut picture book, There Was a Party for Langston, won a Caldecott Honor and a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor. It's about time that I finish this series and figure out what happens with all of the other characters. It kept me engaged and it was enthralling to read from the perspective of Ghost (Castle Cranshaw) , about his thoughts and choices made which were closely linked to his circumstances and past events. I had such high hopes for this book to be a companion read to The Crossover by Kwame Alexander with my 6th graders.Ghost (aka Castle) Cranshaw is from an impoverished background, and he’s been through something traumatic. When I was really young, I used to ask him if a sunflower was going to grow inside of him since he ate the seeds so much. I used to just put a whole bunch of them in my mouth at the same time, suck all the salt off, then spit them all out machine-gun-style. Reviewing Ghost in The New York Times, Kate Messner said that in his title character, Reynolds has created a protagonist "whose journey is so genuine that he's worthy of a place alongside Ramona and Joey Pigza on the bookshelves where our most beloved, imperfect characters live.

This is a sensitive, realistic look at a young person dealing with trauma and trying to avoid the crushing effects of racism, poverty, and abuse; but the novel is never preachy or heavy.Now Jason Reynolds, a young adult author until this year, has produced a middle grade novel centered on that must unlikely of sports: track. From fast-paced football matches to school and family drama, this novel written in verse has something for everyone and will grip reluctant readers from page one. But when he wanders onto a field where a track team is training, Ghost proves he has what it takes to run with the best of them.
