""Like how when you at the swimming pool on the hottest day of summer, and you jump in and it's cool, and then you take one step too far and suddenly you're in the deep end, and things ain't so cool anymore no more. Because you can't swim." (Reynolds 97)."

While reading Ghost i stumbled upon the quote "Like how when you at the swimming pool on the hottest day of summer, and you jump in and it's cool, and then you take one step too far and suddenly you're in the deep end, and things ain't so cool anymore no more. Because you can't swim." (Reynolds 97). This quote was describing how Ghost felt when he was stuck in the stock room. I like it because you don't see things described that way, but it's really relatable. Analogies like that help the reader relate to Ghost more. This supports how good of a writer Jason Reynolds is.
