Jason Reynolds’s acclaimed new middle-grade novel is a book with appeal to runners of any age. Ghost is a kid with crazy speed who by accident sprints his way onto an elite team of fast kids who have Olympic aspirations. But Ghost also has family demons he’s trying to escape and if they catch him they could very well destroy him. As befits a story about running, this is a rocket-paced, tightly wound narrative. With snap and snazz, it launches a new series in which each book will feature a different kid on this team of speedy young souls daring to dream of going for gold.
