Isaac, a young Choctaw boy, begins to have horrible premonitions that foretell the deaths of many of his neighbors. Realizing that these visions are a premonition of his own death, Isaac and his family begin one of the most perilous journeys in American history as they are forced onto the Trail of Tears. In a story that is at once stark, heartfelt, magical, and terrifying, Tim Tingle’s How I Became a Ghost will stay with you long after you put the book down. Ages 10 and up.

— Chelsie


A Choctaw boy tells the story of his tribe's removal from the only land his people had ever known, and how their journey to Oklahoma led him to become a ghost--one with the ability to help those he left behind.
