Ghost Boy's Is about a boy named Jerome and dies because a cop thinks Jerome's toy gun is real and thinks it is a threat. Jerome sees himself dead and roams around as a ghost on earth to watch the effects of his death on his family ans his only friend, ( Carlos ).
Jerome never liked the idea of carrying around a toy gun, he knew that his streets were dangerous with a gun. But Carlos gave it to him to scare away bullies that were picking on them. Pretending to fight crime was the only real fun Jerome ever had in his life, (before he died)
Ghost Boys BY Jewell Parker Rhodes.
The cop who shot Jerome had a daughter who was very impacted by the whole situation, once she heard/saw the real truth in a video. She was the only person though who could see Jerome and all the other ghost boys who were victims of racial killings.
