The Crossover

by Kwame Alexander Year Published: 2014 Novel in Verse, FIC ALE

This book is in verse.  I reads just like any book written in typical prose, except it is better.  Lively.  Shorter.


It is not as much about basketball as it is about life.  I don't even really like basketball that much, and I was captured by this book.  The title is a pun.  Can you figure out why?  

Read this book if you think most chapter books are "too long."  


We met Kwame Alexander and his friend at Changing Hands Bookstore in Phoenix, AZ on April 16.  It was the best library-sponsored field trip yet.
