Chapter 5: World Record for the Most Runaways in a Single Day – While Ghost is happy about his converted high-tops, his legs hurt from all the running at practice the previous day. In Social Studies, Shamika, a large silly girl, begins laughing at Ghost’s shoes. The teacher asks Shamika what is so funny, so she points to Ghost’s shoes. This causes everyone in class to laugh, and Ghost to be humiliated and angered.

The lunch bell rings, so Ghost takes the opportunity to run away from school to clear his mind. He ends up at Everything Sports, and looks over the running shoe section. He tries on a pair of silver shoes that remind him of wearing bullets. They fit perfectly. He slips them into his backpack and steals them.

Ghost feels strange and scared, so he goes to the place he feels...

What's .css-1msjh1x{font-style:italic;} ghost about.

A National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. 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 of the acclaimed Track 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?

What Kind of Book is Ghost

Primarily about, race, ethnicities, & nationalities, what should i know as a parent.

Families are unique and have different expectations for the books they choose to read. The following are concepts included in this book that some parents may wish to seek out or avoid.

Note that this list is not exhaustive and there may be concepts in this book that are not included or have been insufficiently or incorrectly detailed here.

The main character's father is physically abusive and violent. One night, he tries to shoot the main character and his mom as they flee from the house.

There are a few references to "junkies" who use drugs and to "dealers" who sell drugs.

I'm not always a fan of sport stories, but this was captivating. This is the first Jason Reynolds book I've read, and I'm impressed. Serious obstacles, meaningful friendships, inspiring role models. And quite a few laugh-out-loud moments.

Childhood & Youth

Juvenile literature, realistic fiction (middle grade), teams & gangs.

by Jason Reynolds

Ghost metaphors and similes, death chasing behind us (metaphor).

When recounting the time his father fired a handgun toward his and his mother's fleeing backs, Castle comments: "My mom and I kept running, down the staircase into the street, breaking into the darkness with death chasing behind us." In this metaphor, Castle refers to the lethal threat his father poses as "death." While no physical entity is actually chasing him and his mother, Castle employs a flourish of language to illustrate how it feels to him as though he is running from the grim reaper.

Like a Mountain of Dead Flies (Simile)

After buying his usual bag of sunflower seeds from Mr. Charles, Castle takes a seat on a bench by the running track and observes the Defenders' track practice. Annoyed by Lu's cockiness and believing he can run faster, Castle gets up to challenge the sprinter. Castle comments: "I stepped over all the sunflower seed shells that had piled up between my feet like a mountain of dead flies, and walked." In this simile, Castle compares his spit-out sunflower shells to a mountain of dead flies, emphasizing how he has transformed the savory snack into a lifeless pile of saliva-darkened shells that he finds no more appetizing than a mound of dead insects.

Eyes Burning Through the Headrest (Metaphor)

After proving his skills by crashing the Defenders' track practice, Castle is invited by Coach Brody to join the team. Castle says his mother probably won't let him, so the coach convinces Castle to let him speak to her about it himself. On the way home in the coach's taxicab, Castle spots his mother walking, and invites her to get in. She reluctantly gets in the backseat, wary of what Castle is doing in this stranger's car. Castle can sense her skepticism and judgment from where he sits in the front, commenting: "She was sitting directly behind me, but I could still feel the heat of her eyes burning through the headrest, scorching the back of my neck." In this metaphor, Castle speaks of his mother's intense stare as though it is literally powerful enough to burn through layers of fabric and cushioning to burn the skin on his neck. In reality, he merely imagines her look of disapproval and experiences the physical sensation of flushed skin that comes with being in trouble.

Backflips in My Nostrils (Metaphor)

During the Chinese restaurant meal to which the coach treats the newbies, Castle orders Peking duck. When the plates reach the table, however, the coach takes everyone's cutlery and chopsticks, saying he won't give them back until each person reveals something about themself that most people don't know. As Castle's desire to eat builds, he comments: "I stared at my duck, the smell of it doing all kinds of cartwheels and backflips in my nostrils." In this metaphor, Castle emphasizes the ecstasy-inducing scent of the roast duck meat by speaking of the smell as though it is a figure capable of doing gymnastics in his nose.

Legs Becoming Wooden With Fear (Metaphor)

While handing out team uniforms, Coach Brody neglects to mention Castle's name. When Castle asks about the omission, the coach reveals that he knows Castle stole his silver running shoes from Everything Sports. Instead of giving him a uniform, the coach makes Castle sit out the practice, leaving him to stew in the discomfort of not knowing what his punishment will be. Castle comments: "So I just sat there, my legs becoming wooden with fear." In this metaphor, Castle illustrates the anxiety-induced numbness in his legs by likening the feeling to what it would feel like if his limbs transformed into solid logs of dead wood.
