I loved this book! If you like basketball or any other competitive sport you should definitely read it! If you have a goal in life that you would do anything to achieve, you should check out the main characters in The Crossover. If you are in Grade 7 or 8 and need a book for a book report, you should consider this one. Great read!

Parent Point: This book is written in free verse, which seems to be becoming a more popular genre. I love seeing how poetry and the novel can come together to create a strong plot and something unique stylistically. Other books that I have read in the last year  that are free verse include Counting Back From Nine by Valerie Sherrard and Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. I have enjoyed them all!
