* "Alexander has crafted a story that vibrates with energy and heat and begs to be read aloud. A slam dunk."
School Library Journal, starred review

"Concrete poems that simulate on-court action, the novel's organization into "four quarters" (plus "warm-up" and "overtime") and a smattering of their father's 10 rules of basketball--as applicable to life as they are to the game--will draw in less avid readers, and the fully-fleshed characters and Josh's spellbinding wordplay will keep all readers riveted to find out if the brothers can mend the breach in their once iron-clad bond"
—Shelf Awareness


"An accomplished author and poet, Alexander eloquently mashes up concrete poetry, hip-hop, a love of jazz, and a thriving family bond. The effect is poetry in motion."
—Booklist

“The characters of Kwame Alexander's verse-novel entered my heart, as it showed the many ways in which the basketball, the truth, love, and life cross over and between us.”  
—Marilyn Nelson, Newbery Honor winning author of CARVER: A LIFE IN POEMS
 
"THE CROSSOVER is a masterful mix of rhythm and heart that tells the story of two brothers navigating the deep waters of love, loyalty, and championship play.  Alexander’s verse is fluid and electric, poignant and wise, skillfully chronicling main character Josh’s tough lessons as he comes to realize that “true champions / learn / to dance / through / the storm.” 
—Joyce Sidman, Newbery Honor winning author of Dark Emporer and Other Poems of the Night
 
"Bold!  Explosive! Yet still gently poetic.  I love THE CROSSOVER.   Everyone will."  
—Nikki Giovanni   
 
"Kwame Alexander's sizzling, heartfelt story-in-verse, THE CROSSOVER, gives readers that rich sense of SWISH! we feel when a basketball drops perfectly through a net. Quick timing, snazzy cadence, a wealth of energy and deep affection for sports, family and life in general — it's all here, in these gripping scenes."
—Naomi Shihab Nye, National Book Award Finalist
 
"Kwame Alexander's cadenced basketball novel is a gem of poise and grace. His players come alive with the precision and control of an orchestrated musical composition.  The poetry of the telling rings through to the heart.  THE CROSSOVER, crosses over as a gift to all ages."
—Ashley Bryan, Two-time Coretta Scott King Award winner
 

"If you step on a basketball court you better have game.
Writing demands the same.
The Crossover by Kwame Alexander consists of poems finding nothing but net.
This is a book that takes risks with form. Does it redefine the novel?
Turning the pages of this book one will immediately be reminded
of the day Magic Johnson played every position and won a Lakers
Championship. Yes, Alexander is that good and his book will place
a smile on your face. The Crossover is also about the serious health issues
confronting families. Too many of us are forced to contend with daily fastbreaks,
fadeaways and dunks. How we continue to love is dependent on how we rebound. I like
what Alexander has done here. Now who has next?
—E. Ethelbert Miller, Director, African American Resource Center, Howard University

5.0 von 5 Sternen Boys love this book. 7. Mai 2016
Von L. Gallier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I showed this book to my gifted 4th graders and the boys who previously showed very little interest in reading immediately loved this book. They loved the dust jacket, then they took that off and loved the texture of the book cover (which is like the skin of a basketball). Thank you, Kwame Alexander, for these hooks before they even opened the book. Then they loved that it was poetry (fewer words per page..."I'm on page 32!"), and they loved the first page - maybe the best first page ever written for a boy reader.

These kids were immediately sucked into the story. They loved the dynamics between the twin brothers, and the confidence of the narrator. They loved the father's pride in his son and that the father's language and taste was cheesy and dated.

I can't thank the author enough for writing something that sounds so real, so relevant, so current, for boys who want to recognize themselves and their families on the page. It's not easy for an adult to write authentically for children using current language and icons that appeal to children. The boys in my group didn't know all of the basketball stars in the book - I needed to tell them who Magic Johnson was, for example - but they are a bit younger than the intended audience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love it because my nine year old son loves it 5. April 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I love it because my nine year old son loves it. For homework he has to read everyday for at least 20 minutes and proceed to write a reading response about what he read. After reading this book, he is writing the longest responses ever! LOL I was delighted to watch as he wrote effortlessly about the reading. The funny part is that he was hesitant to read the book at first, claiming, after reading the first couple of lines and flipping through the book, that it is was a whole bunch of poems!. After the first two or three pages, he quickly became immersed in the book and found it easy to talk to me about what was going on in the storyline. LOVE THIS BOOK!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome 13. März 2016
Von Houston Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Wow. When I first started reading this book to my don, I hated it. The entire book is written like a rap song, and, well, I'm no rapper. I felt ridiculous even trying. But after about 20 pages I got used to it. I can't believe how much depth in plot and characters Kwame Alexander was able to achieve in the form of a rap song! I feel like I personally know the protagonist and his twin brother. I think about them all the time. I couldn't even finish the last several pages because I kept getting choked up. My 11 year old had to take over for me. In short, it's a beautifully written story that most kids will really get into. I want to buy everything Kwame Alexander has ever written!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Crossover is a Slam-Dunk! 9. Dezember 2016
Von ZCMama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
From the start, the Crossover by Kwame Alexander, shows off its spin moves and keeps readers entertained with creative language like, “Straight in the hole: Swoooooooooooosh”. Josh and J.B., 12-year-old twin brothers are at the center of the story and are learning to work together in basketball and life.

At the beginning, the boys get really mad at each other whenever they have to do something together because they feel like they always have to be together since they are twins. One example is that Josh and J.B. don’t like passing to each other in basketball.

Josh and J.B. feel like real people that kids can relate to. The boys act like real kids throughout the book. They do things like Play Madden, take tests, and get in trouble with their mom.

In the middle of the book, Josh and J.B are shooting free throws. J.B. makes 41 in a row and Josh doesn’t make any. Their Dad says, “Josh, J.B is putting on a free throw clinic,” which makes Josh upset. This shows how competitive the boys are and how much they care about basketball. Both of these things, middle school readers are able to identify with.

The fast-paced free verse and hip-hop poetry continues to wow readers throughout the book. The boys continue to grow and learn new things about themselves and their relationship to each other. In the end, the boys learn to work together to win their basketball game and appreciate each other.

Readers can learn to follow Josh’s Basketball Rules of life as they enjoy the Crossover. The rules include Basketball Rule #1 which is, “In the game of life your family is the court and the ball is your heart. No matter how good you are, no matter how down you get, always leave your heart on the court.”

The Crossover is a fantastic book that middle school kids will enjoy! A great read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like a Song 5. Februar 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a former librarian, I wonder what books children and young adults will read and enjoy. As the mother of a 13-year-old, I wonder what books will pull him away from his computer games. I believe that The Crossover by Keane Alexander is such a book. It is full of action and contemporary references, as well as realistic family dynamics. The poetry filled the book with movement and song; it is almost as if it gave flesh to the book. I wish there were more books with male protagonists like this in this age group. I could not put this book down. I cannot wait to share it with my son.
