Reader suggested Crossover is a novel written by Kwame Alexander. This novel is written like a basketball play and poetically. I have to admit I was unsure but from the very beginning I was pulled in! I DONT EVEN LIKE BASKETBALL! The only thing I could envision while reading was this:
But the story is realistically relatable. 8th grade Justin Bell has a twin brother and is a beast on the court. He’s struggling with issues of life: being an adolescent, finding his own identity separate from his identical twin brother, and being alone. Like we all did in middle school, he has outbursts in anger and learns several life lessons. I recommend you read this short book and go for a ride! 4/5 I don’t like basketball so I won’t reread but it was just enough that I could tolerate it for the first read. Thoroughly relatable though!
