A young Choctaw boy dies on the Trail of Tears and becomes a ghost. His dramatic journey and encounters with other ghosts draw the reader into the tragic story of many Native Americans.
  NCSS | Jul 23, 2021 |
"A 10-year-old Choctaw boy recounts the beginnings of the forced resettlement of his people from their Mississippi-area homelands in 1830.

He begins his story with a compelling hook: “Maybe you have never read a book written by a ghost before. I am a ghost. I am not a ghost when this book begins, so you have to pay very close attention.” Readers meet Isaac, his family and their dog, Jumper, on the day that Treaty Talk changes everything. Even as the Choctaw prepare to leave their homes, Isaac begins to have unsettling visions: Some elders are engulfed in flames, and others are covered in oozing pustules. As Isaac and his family set out on the Choctaw Trail of Tears, these visions begin to come true, as some are burned to death by the Nahullos and others perish due to smallpox-infested blankets distributed on the trail. But the Choctaw barrier between life and death is a fluid one, and ghosts follow Isaac, providing reassurance and advice that allow him to help his family and others as well as to prepare for his own impending death. Storyteller Tingle’s tale unfolds in Isaac’s conversational voice; readers “hear” his story with comforting clarity and are plunged into the Choctaw belief system, so they can begin to understand it from the inside out.

The beginning of a trilogy, this tale is valuable for both its recounting of a historical tragedy and its immersive Choctaw perspective . (Historical fiction. 8-12)" A Kirkus Starred Review, www.kirkusreviews.com

Well, that was a bit of a surprise. This middle-grade adventure story about the Trail of Tears started strong and kept up the pace. There was an odd scene of patriotism at the end that I didn't quite get and there's a bit of a "damsel in distress" vibe, but aside from those, I really enjoyed this novel.

I'm reading this with my son as part of the Build Your Library curriculum, level 5. ( )

The story "How I Became a Ghost" by Tim Tingle was an interesting and unique storyline for me to read through and discover. I enjoyed this story as the character, Issac a young Choctaw boy, who only wishes to help others during their ongoing and frequent encounters with tragedy. I also found this story to be a quick read for the first fifteen chapters within the story, however after readers meet the character Joseph, the boy who lived with old Man and old Woman, I hit a barrier. For me, after readers met Joseph, the rest of the plotline seemed rushed and therefore unrealistic. For instance, with Joseph, his character randomly and rapidly appears when Issac has an issue that needs the assistance of someone like Joseph, which again was unrealistic for a historical fiction novel. I tried multiple times to continue reading and failed with a variety of attempts. Despite my disinterest towards the end of the story, I still enjoyed seeing Issac's character develop and the positive effects of his actions on others. To conclude, "How I Became a Ghost" is a great story for students to be exposed to the Native Americans' suffering on the trail of tears and the topic of sacrificing for others. ( )
