Can you recommend a book for 5th grade boys. I'm going to use it as a guided reading book but it must be interesting to these inner city tough kids. Thank you

Ghost, by Jason Reynolds

Wonderful books (and first of a series) about a boy in the inner city who accidentally joins the track team, and how his coach and team help him overcome some personal struggles.

Are the "I Survived..." books too low?
