The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

Josh and Jordan Bell are fourteen-year-old twins who live to play b-ball. They are exceptional on the court: fast, skilled and dedicated. Their father played professional ball, back in the day, and he encourages and coaches them in the game. Josh’s perfect world starts to fall apart when Jordan gets a girlfriend and the relationship the twins have had is put to the test. The family is further tested when Dad gets sick.

This fast-paced story is about the thrill of playing basketball and making amazing shots on the court. It is written in Josh’s voice who is a rhymer/rapper as well as a basketball phenomenon. As he progresses through the season he learns that change is not necessarily a bad thing in relationships and that nothing can break the bonds of loyalty between family members. He come to realize that when things get tough it is family who ultimately come through for you.
