Item Details

Told first-person by a young Choctaw boy who does not survive the Trail of Tears, How I Became a Ghost is a tale of innocence and hope in the face of untold tragedy. Tingle creates a remarkable foursome of Choctaw comrades: a tough-minded teenage girl, a shape-shifting panther teenage boy, a loveable five-year-old ghost who only wants her mom and dad to be happy, and the young narrator, who struggles to remember what a ghost can and cannot do. And let’s not forget the talking and insightful dog, Jumper. The first in a trilogy, How I Became A Ghost thinly disguises the harsh reality of the Choctaw Trail of Tears, an important and oft-overlooked history with page-turning tension and deft humor.

This is a quick read of a story of how young people (with some help from their elders and ancestors) make "a way out of no way." Author Tim Tingle has managed to accomplish the difficult task of telling a compelling story in which kids are kids and a community finds creative ways to survive while at the same time honoring the bleak history of what has happened to Native Americans (in this case the Choctaws). In addition to being a good read in general, this book could be a good choice for reluctant readers as well as young people who have suffered trauma.
