Book Reviews!

Hey everyone! Today I am here with three book reviews. All the books are by the same author, and I promise they will be spoiler free! (I will try my best not to spoil anything)

The Crossover

By Kwame Alexander

Year Published: 2014

Genre: Fiction

Pages: 240

Age: (I’m not really sure on this one…) 12+

About: The Crossover is about a boy who plays basketball, his dad was a legendary basketball player. The book is written entirely in poetry, which I find very interesting and enjoyable.

I would recommend this book to tweens and teens who like poetry. I found that poetry style takes less time to read, yet gives a good story. I would also recommend this book to people who enjoy reading, but don’t have the time to read a long novel.

I give The Crossover 4.5 out of 5 stars because at times it was hard to understand exactly what was going on.



By Kwame Alexander

Year Published: 2016

Genre: Fiction

Pages: 314

Age: 12+

About: Booked is about a boy who plays soccer.

Again, this book is written entirely in poetry.

I found this book very interesting, and would recommend to any person who is going through a though time in life as the boy goes through a lot in this book.

I give Booked a 4 out of 5 because there is some ‘language’ in it. They aren’t really bad words, just words that I do not approve of using.



By Kwame Alexander

Year Published: 2018

Genre: Fiction

Pages: 414

Age: 12+

About: Rebound is about a boy whom recently lost is father. He learns to like basketball.

Again, it is written in poetry.

Rebound was a very interesting, un-put-downable book. The story was moving, and the boy’s struggle felt real.

I give Rebound a 5 out of 5 stars as I found this book intriguing.


So, that’s it! Tell me in the comments if you have read any of these books and if you would like to see more book reviews!

    1. They aren’t all about the same boy. If you ever read them, read Rebound first, then The Crossover. Those to relate to each other, but they are not about the same boy exactly.
