Despite being short, this was actually a very deep book. Ghost is a runner on the Defnders track team that tries to hide from his past. He now lives with his single mother who struggles to raise him. Ghost is very fast, but this lack of proper equipment becuase his family is poor slows him down. Ghost makes many mistakes, but throughout the book, he learns to control his anger and to trust other people such as his coach and team. Worth reading!
