In the beginning of the story we find out that ghost has a bad reputation because of all the trouble he has got him self into. and also because of his past. ''I got a school rap sheet but in school they call it a file. i got a file. and even tho i never seen it its pretty big because im always being sent down to the principles office or put in detention or suspended for shutting people down for talking smack.''
In the story I read that ghost tried out a different sport and witch was track and made the team ''i got to punch that jerk Brandon in the face. I know I know not cool,but still! leave school early and hang out by then track with my new coach because I was on a team now.''
In the story I read that at school kids were criticizing castles shoes at school because of the design. ''there amazing i love them I said, trying not to look her in the face maybe ill come back later for them, i pushed the door open the ran of I was waiting for someone to say hey get the thief.'' '' whats so funny shamika? Mr hollow said. and she pointed to my shoes in front of the class.''
In the story I read that coach gave the team there uniforms ''I was in the bathroom staring at my self through the mirror. coach had gave use our uniform for the race.''
in the story I read that castle was very nervous because of the amount of people at the track in the crowd I was used to seeing it sprinkled with a few parents but on race days there was people everywhere.
In the end I read that ghost was racing and barely lost the race. ''I got ponytail by the nose second place the col lapsed people cheering all around me jumping up and down in the stands quickly became a wavy blur of colors as tears rose. second?place stupid second place."
