Book #51 Read in 2017
The Crossover by Kwame Alexander
This book is so much more than a sports novel for young adult readers. Told in verse, this book tells the story of Josh, a middle school basketball player dealing with a lot of emotional issues in his life. His twin brother has just started dating his first girlfriend, his father is sick....and Josh does not know how to always handle his emotions in the proper way. This book is a powerful read and will resonate with high school readers as well as adult readers. I see myself recommending it to my students in the fall.
