Running. That's all Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) has ever known.

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. If Ghost can stay on track, literally and figuratively, he could be the best sprinter in the city. Can Ghost harness his raw talent for speed, or will his past finally catch up to him?

Read the Run series: Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school running team-a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose and a lot to prove. Not only to each other, but to themselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...it's easy to praise Reynolds's vivid depiction of life in Ghost's urban neighborhood as one that's challenging and full of warmth, relationships and hope. But this book's biggest strength is Ghost himself. Reynolds has created a character whose journey is so genuine.' - The New York Times

'An endearing protagonist runs the first, fast leg of Reynolds' promising relay.' - Kirkus 

'Reynolds (As Brave As You) uses a light hand to delve into topics that include gun violence, class disparity, and bullying in this compelling series opener.' - Publishers Weekly

“Engaging, brilliant and filled with diverse characters. A must for every kid's shelf.”

I was hooked on Ghost almost immediately. The novel opens with Ghost regaling the reader on his favourite Guinness World record facts, before cleanly segueing into his love for sunflower seeds stemming from his... More

“A book you can’t help but sprint through”

This is one of those rare books that actually deserves the 'I couldn't put it down' claim. From page one Reynolds has crafted one of the most compelling voices in fiction that I've read for quite... More
