Hierdie boek deur die veelbekroonde Jason Reynolds is meesterlik deur André Trantraal in Kaapse Afrikaans vertaal vir 'n voorheen onontginde mark. Lesers sal hulself met hierdie karakters en konteks kan vereenselwig soos nog nooit tevore nie. Maar dis uiteindelik Spoekie self wat inderdaad by die leser bly spook - 'n karakter met so 'n komplekse en outentieke reis dat die leser vasgebind bly aan die verhaal lank nadat die boek klaar is.
