Review: Ghost is a runner--running from school, his life, and the law. When he is selected to be on a premier track team, Ghost must learn to stay on the straight and narrow, which he finds very difficult. Coach, an ex-Olympic medalist, is determined to keep the kids on the team successful, which turns out to be a full-time job. In this first title of the Track series, Ghost must learn to listen, follow the rules, admit to mistakes, and practice humility--all through trial and error.
