Interview with Alan Lightman

Jason Reynolds inaugurates his new Track series with Ghost, the story of young Castle Cranshaw, who discovers something about himself the night his father shoots at him and his mother: He can run fast. When Coach Brody puts him on the track team, Ghost finds a community he never expected, one that includes different kinds of kids, some with stories like his own, all ready to be there for each other. Reynolds has crafted a novel with the subtle elegance that has earned him several recent honors from the Coretta Scott King jury and the recent Walter Dean Myers Award.
