"With a bolt of lightning on my kicks... The court is SIZZLING. My sweat is DRIZZLING. Stop all that quivering. Cuz tonight I'm delivering," announces dreadlocked 12-year old Josh Bell. He and his twin brother, Jordan, are awesome on the court. But Josh has more than basketball in his blood. He's got mad beats, too, that tell his family's story in verse in this fast and furious middle grade novel of family and brotherhood from Kwame Alexander.
Josh and Jordan must come to grips with growing up on and off the court to realize breaking the rules comes at a terrible price, as their story's heart-stopping climax proves a game changer for the entire family.

What did you love best about The Crossover?
Kwame Alexander tells a timeless story and captures a new audience using an unlikely format--poetry. In fact, it is Alexander's genius use of multiple poetic styles that makes what could have been a ho-hum plot line a riveting and personal encounter with a family dealing with modern day issues: coming-of-age, family health, and trust. This book leaves you wishing for more of everything it offers.

Every 10 to 100 year old forever young should hear it.
Meant the world to me and my 12 year old son. I've put away all of the screens for a long time so books have become our only non-self produced entertainment----thank god this one rocked his-our world.
