The book I’m reading right now is Ghost by Jason Reynolds. The book is about how Castle (main character) is bullied at school for the clothes he wheres, the part of town he lives in, his moms job, and all sorts of things. That leads to him into getting into fights, and then trouble. So, one day after school he decides to go over to the track to watch a select track team practice. He sees them running sprints. While he’s watching, there is this one cocky kid who keeps outrunning everybody. Castle gets so agitated over this cocky dude named Lu that he decides to race him. Castle ends up beating Lu and is awarded a spot on the track team, but only one condition. He has to be trouble free the whole time he’s on the team or he’ll be kicked off. As castle stays out of trouble at school, he still has stay out of trouble on the street.
