Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes is a sad yet frighteningly true story. It is true because African American kids are being shot all over the U.S.A, but it is not a true story because the main character Jerome is a ghost. We rate this a 4.5 out of 5. This is a must-read for anyone who is in 6th-8th grade, because it is true and they should know what is happening all over their country. It snags you from the very beginning. The first chapter is a cliff-hanger and you want to know the full story.
