The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

The Bell twins look alike, and they have many things in common.  But, you can definitely tell the difference between what the boys think is most important except they agree on 2 things--family and basketball.  And, they make sure to stick to the Bell basketball rules:  In this game of life, your family is the court, and the ball is your heart.

This book is told in verse, and Alexander does a masterful job of pairing poetry with basketball.  You feel as though you are on the court, but the story is not just about basketball.  It is about family, and how you deal with a sibling who does not see things your way and a dad who ignores the signs.

READ. THIS. BOOK.  You will not be sorry.
