CROSSOVER by Kwame Alexander
Book description from Amazon.com.."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.
My 25 cents...This was a great story and a f-a-s-t read! Written in prose, it will take no time at all for the reader to be eagerly turning pages as they get caught up in the twin brothers' story here. One does not need to know anything about basketball to enjoy this title either, basketball just happens to be a shared passion of the characters.
