    Ebook ç The Crossover PDF/EPUB ò crossover pdf, The Crossover PDFI am late in reviewing this but oh my goodness what an amazing book Kwame Alexander gives us a novel in verse a series of poems about twin brothers JD and Jordan Bell sons of a former pro basketball player who are making their way through middle school as best they can navigating first crushes homework family tensions and of course basketball I was in awe of Alexander's ability to tell such a rich multifaceted story with so few words Poetry is hard at least for me yet Alexander like all great athletes and writers makes the three point shots look easy You will laugh in this book many times You will also cry You've been warned You will want to know about the characters' lives but you will also put down the book with a satisfied sigh knowing the ending was perfection It's a quick read even for a slow reader like me I kept thinking so many times

Basketball Not a fan Not even a little bit With those two things working against it I really didn't want to read The Crossover by Kwame Alexander But it's getting a lot of award buzz so I finally rather petulantly picked up a copy Ahem This book is AMAZING I loved it This is why we should always stretch ourselves to

    Ebook ç The Crossover PDF/EPUB ò crossover pdf, The Crossover PDFWOW oh WOW When a book hits a sweet spot it zooms from one student to another As soon as I read the opening lines of The Crossover with its basketball cover and bouncing rap beat I just knew I had to read it aloud to my 5th graders But nothing prepared me for how it hooked them To say they are loving it is an understatement Fifth grade boys are just about wrestling each other to see who's going to get it next jostling each other over a novel in verseFor Josh Bell basketball and his family are everything to him He pushes himself to excel but he loves every minute he spends with the game especially the way he plays it with his twin brother Jordan and his dad Kwame Alexander captures Josh's voice and the power of basketball in a way that comes alive for my students They love the rhythm and pulsing movement the attitude and sass in Josh's words The power of this novel comes not only from
