Stu is trying out for the school basketball team, but he's not making his shots. He decides to hang out after school to practice some more. He finds a friend named Randy ready to help him and play some pickup games after school. Randy helps him improve his game, but Stu can't figure out who Randy is talking about when asked about a couple teachers. He finds out later, through some research, that Randy died in a car accident back in the 50s. This scares Stu a little, but he ends up making a good friend - even if he is just a ghost. 

This book is a fast read. Highlighting special words in the book with different colors and fonts helps readers focus on special words that might need explaining or emphasis in the reading. This would make an excellent read-a-loud for a group read. Reluctant readers will be exposed to new words as well as the genres of sports, ghost stories and mysteries. 

Recommended K-2nd Grade
