Product description

A brutal book full of anger and tears: one to claw and tear at your heart. Want to live? Don’t be a black boy. Don’t be black and dead, like Jerome. Jerome is a good kid. He doesn’t get into trouble. He always does his homework. He looks out for his little sis. Best of all, he’s alive. Then Jerome is shot by a policeman who mistakes his toy gun for a real one. Now he’s dead. But it’s not over. As a ghost, watching his family grieve, Jerome starts to notice the other ghost boys. Each boy has a story, and they all have something in common. They were all murdered. And they’re all black…

  • A heartbreaking story about race in today’s world
  • Blends Jerome’s fictional tale with real-life events
  • Explores police brutality and the legacy of racism
  • By the author of Ninth Ward and Towers Falling
