STUDENT REVIEW: The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

Published March 18, 2014

“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 dread-locked, 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. –Amazon

    i finally finished the crossover on october 27th and i’m going to tell you it is a really good book but you might well have an emotion at the end if you are reading it but i certainly loved it even know i don’t play basketball i play hockey but i wish Kwame Alexander would make more books on different sports so if you are planning on reading it or haven’t read it yet “Hurry up your missing out”
