About this deal

That’s easier said than done when Brandon Sanderson is in your face every day at school, you can’t forget your painful past, and when you want a new pair of trainers so badly you’d do anything to get them. This is the first book in the Track series: What conflicts do you think Ghost is going to face in the next book?

I just sit there with the other people waiting for the bus, except I’m never actually waiting for it. I know this all probably sounds kinda weird, maybe even creepy, but it’s something to do when you’re bored. One day while killing time in the park, he stumbles upon a track practice and ends up racing one of the fastest kids on the team—and winning. I loved that Ghost isn't perfect but that the consequences take a while to show up (not as didactic as some middle readers can be. Then, one day, Ghost comes across a practice in the park and decides to race one of the sprinters, a decision that leads him to join Coach Brody’s elite track team: the Defenders.His character is so authentic, you wouldn’t be surprised if he walked straight off the page, living and breathing.

He knows because when his dad came at him and his mother on one violent night, running was the only way to get away. 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.Jason Reynolds always manages to squeeze numerous topics into his books without making the narrative feel over crowded. Then there’s a cliffhanger where it was a big race and the starting gun fired great and that was the ending! Ghost was a New York Times best seller and National Book Award for Young People's Literature finalist.
