Review: Ghost by Jason Reynolds (Spoiler-Free)
The overwhelming thought I had while reading this was: I'm so glad that kids are reading this. Obviously, I still adored this from the perspective of someone older than the target audience, but I can't even imagine how much kids today must cherish these books. Even for kids who can't relate to Ghost's home life, his voice is so undeniably relatable to any kid reading. I'm so glad Jason Reynolds put these incredibly heartwarming, yet important books into the world, and I'm so glad kids are reading them. This book is about so much more than track, and I truly do believe that any kid could find themself within these pages, some even more than others. And for many, finding themself in these pages might help them get through things in the real world.
