Synopsis

A New York Times Bestseller



This was one of my most anticipated 2018 books and I was not disappointed. A must read." -Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give



'tender, timely ... surprising and hopeful' - Observer





A heartbreaking and powerful story about a black boy killed by a white police officer, drawing connections with real-life, from award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes.



ALIVE

Twelve-year-old Jerome doesn't get into trouble. He goes to school. He does his homework. He takes care of his little sister.



Then Jerome is shot by a police officer who mistakes his toy gun for a real threat.



DEAD



As a ghost, watching his family trying to cope with his death, Jerome begins to notice other ghost boys.



Each boy has a story and they all have something in common...



Bit by bit, Jerome begins to understand what really happened - not just to him, but to all of the ghost boys.





A poignant and gripping story about how children and families face the complexities of race and racism in today's world.
