The Crossover / Kwame Alexander

Check out the 2015 Newbery Medal winner! 7th graders Josh and Jordan Bell are the basketball stars of their school, thanks to a little coaching from their dad, a former professional basketball player. Things change when Jordan’s new girlfriend, the “pulchritudinous” Miss Sweet Tea, comes between them and Josh discovers that the rules of basketball can also be like the rules of life. Written in verse that will appeal to teens, the story begs to be read aloud. You don’t need to be a basketball fan to enjoy this fantastic rhythmic journey.
