Josh Bell, a.k.a. Filthy McNasty, and his twin brother Jordan (JB), are junior high basketball phenoms; their father, Chuck "Da Man" Bell, played in a European league and put basketballs in their hands as soon as they could hold them. The boys have different strengths but play together well - usually. But JB wins a bet and gets to cut off one of Josh's locs, but then cuts off five, and Josh has to shave off the rest. Then JB gets a girlfriend, new girl Alexis, "Miss Sweet Tea," and has less time for Josh. And their dad is having health problems but refuses to go to the doctor, and the brothers discover that his career ended because he refused to get surgery. Ironically, it's his fear of doctors and hospitals that makes things worse, culminating in tragedy right as the twins' team is headed into their most important game.

This novel in free verse flows like a basketball game itself, full of rhythm and rhyme, loud and quiet, fast and slow. Josh narrates game action with hip-hop style: words appear in bold, caps, italics, and other creative typography. Thirteen is a difficult age - even if you're already six feet tall and can dunk - and Josh navigates sudden changes the best he can. Some poems are basketball rules, others are definitions (e.g. hypertension).

Middlegrade novel in verse (basketball, school, 9th grade twins). Kwame writes good poetry (with vocabulary-boosting words, even), and this would do well with certain 6th-9th grade boys who can't find books that speak to them otherwise. I generally want to skim over poetry novels and just find out what happens, but it becomes fairly clear that (1) the father will have some terrible health calamity happen to him and (2) this new girl will come between the two twins. Once I figured that out I stopped reading, since I wasn't really interested in the characters and how that would affect them so much (maybe because I didn't relate to them at all). ( )

A fantastic middle grade novel in free verse about twin brothers and their changing lives both on and off the basketball court. It's beautifully done, with varying methods of verse that reflect the situations and emotions as they change throughout, and with a story that grabs you right from the beginning and holds you to the end.

A reread for me - Charlie read it for a school project and I decided to join him. (He loved it, too!) ( )

This book is about a 7th grader, Josh Bell who is 12 years old in this story, and how he has to overcome obstacles and balance his love for basketball with school as well as family. I feel like this book not only provides a good story, but is relatable to young adolescents, and is just an overall good read. You see some deep concepts in this narrative such as love and loss, as well as witness Josh's passion to reach his goal. I enjoyed this book a lot and give it a five out of five stars. Check it out and read it for yourself. ( )

I was struggling to find a book to fit the "Read a book about sports" challenge in the 2017 BookRiot Read Harder Challenge. Although my children are athletes, and they and my husband enjoy watching sports, there's never really been a sport that I liked enough to want to read about it.

Thankfully, one morning on my way to work I was listening to "All the Books," a podcast from BookRiot, and one of the hosts mentioned that The Crossover, in addition to being a match to the listener's request, would be a great book for this particular challenge. I had a eureka moment, because I'd bought this book a couple of years ago for my boys. It was still sitting on Littlest's shelf. I was in.

I was immediately drawn in by the verse. The way the verse fluctuated in length, and the way different size fonts and spacing were used, really brought the feelings and emotions of the 13-year-old narrator to life. Really well done.
