The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

The Crossover

I read “The Crossover” because it won the Newbery Award this year. This was a book about twin brothers who love basketball and are good enough to lead their team to the championship this year. Their dad, a former basketball pro, is a huge inspiration to the both of them, but his ailing health becomes a major concern in the book. The boys begin fueding over a new girlfriend, but in the end, their brotherly love and the love of the game keep them close as ever. An “out of the box” choice for a Newbery, for sure.
