Description of this Book

Running. That's all Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) has ever known. But Ghost has been running for the wrong reasons -until he meets Coach, an ex-Olympic Medallist 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? READ THE RUN SERIES: 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 running 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 and a lot to prove. Not only to each other, but to themselves.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of National Book Awards 2016

Reynolds has created a character whose journey is so genuine NEW YORK TIMES; An endearing protagonist runs the first, fast leg of Reynolds' promising relay. KIRKUS REVIEWS; Reynolds (As Brave As You) uses a light hand to delve into topics that include gun violence, class disparity, and bullying in this compelling series opener. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
