    Review ↠ Ghost Boys Ghost BoysI always struggle to review these types of novels these black lives matter civil rights esue novels I often go into them expecting to be angry I'm pre angry before I even start them Why Because this is happening still today and though the books are based on fictional characters the story themselves are all too realJerome was a kid playing with a toy gun when he was gunned down by a police officer Mistaken for a grown man posing as a threat to society I supposeThe world's demonizing of black boys depicting them as thugs and villains are not new But this impression is depicted in th

    Review ↠ Ghost Boys Ghost BoysSome authors write 400 page books and never manage to successfully convey their intended message to their readers Jewell Parker Rhodes here wrote a 200 page story that brims with strength power and importance I read it in a single sitting That’s how well written and captivating it was I must have gotten goosebumps at least five times as I read about twelve year old Jerome’s life before and after death as well as the different reactions of his friends and family members It’s possible you’ve read stories about police brutality against people of colour before but somehow I can assure you that you have not read anything like this before It’s not simply that the concept is original—having the child who was shot by the police narrate his own story; it’s that there is a beautiful redemptive uality to this storyIndeed the girl of the police officer who murdered Jerome

    Review ↠ Ghost Boys Ghost BoysIf you need some good book recommendation on #blacklivesmatter read this one The overall verdict of how the book handles police brutality and how this book ended is something I want to discuss The one 🌟 missing from the rating has never mattered I am disappointed at how things ended up so uietly after everything has happened The whole book is written really well Clear vivid images of violence and shooting rampant killing of the black since long time back are represented well with relevant representative charactersOn one hand I am really disappointed with how things are handled in the book but on the other hand I feel it just portrays the reality how we feel hopeless even if we all

    Review ↠ Ghost Boys Ghost Boys Ghost Boys will definitely appeal to fans of The Lovely Bones in its strangely beautiful and sad story of a young boy murdered and trying to understand why but its infusion of deeper themes including systematic racism and gun violence gives it its own original footing All too often we look at these types of killings as mere statistics but young Jerome whose life was cut short in a tragic misunderstanding gives a human face to the headlines and hushed gossip Emmett Till appears as a central character rather than just a historical figure educating young readers on injustice and prejudice while providing lovable protagonists and a story of grief and redemption We also get two polarized sides Jerome's angry mourning family a

  • Rachel Reads Ravenously

    Review ↠ Ghost Boys Ghost Boys4 stars “Can't undo wrong Can only do our best to make things right” Ghost Boys is a short but powerful read and one I hope people of all ages will read Jerome is out playing with a toy gun when two policemen shoot him Dead he watches over his family and community as they grieve Joining him in the afterlife is Emmett Till the ghost of a young boy killed in 1955I read this in one sitting it's a very fast read but it packs a lot of punch I was doing my best not to cry in public but still teared up many times It reminds me a lot of a middle grade Long Way Down in terms of the approach and the use of ghosts to move along the story I think parents looking to discuss this t
