Genre:  Realistic Fiction

The book The Crossover was written by Kwame Alexander. The genre of this breath-taking book is poetry realistic fiction. In this 233 page book that is impossible to put down, you’ll watch the book unravel with a roller coaster of events. The main characters Josh and Jordan Bell go through family tragedies and struggles on the court. The two brothers who have a love for basketball like no other, finally have a chance to win the championship game, but they can’t win the game being stuck in a smelly old hospital. Will their team come through? This explosive read written to sound like a “masterful mix” as Joyce Sidman commented, is recommended to people with a love for this sport and realistic fiction. The Crossover was a slam dunk.

    Very informative review, Lily! I hadn’t planned on reading this book because I am not very interested in basketball, but you made this book sound like it would be fun to read when you added that there was a “roller coaster of events”! The only thing that I would recommend would be to include a picture of the cover to make more people want to click on your review!
