Ghost Boys

by Jewell Parker Rhodes
£6.99   paperback  Orion Children (2018)

Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes A New York Times Bestseller
 
A heartbreaking and powerful story about a black boy killed by a white police officer, drawing connections with real-life history, from award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes.
 
ALIVE
Twelve-year-old Jerome doesn't get into trouble. He goes to school. He does his homework. He takes care of his little sister.
 
Then Jerome is shot by a police officer who mistakes his toy gun for a real threat.
 
DEAD
As a ghost, watching his family trying to cope with his death, Jerome begins to notice other ghost boys.
 
Each boy has a story and they all have something in common...
 
Bit by bit, Jerome begins to understand what really happened - not just to him, but to all of the ghost boys.
 
A poignant and gripping story about how children and families face the complexities of race in today's world.
