A great book that makes a slam dunk for sure!  Identical twin brothers Josh and Jason are basketball players through and through! Josh is known asCover of The Crossover by Kwame Alexander Filthy McNasty –a little taller with dreadlocks and Jordan goes by JB and shaves his head. You’ll love this book written in verse—who would have ever guessed that poetry could be so exciting! Read from page 27—this book is about brothers, basketball and read from page 16.  That’s right—it’s about family.  Follow along as these boys play basketball and find out that  life doesn’t always play by the rules!  A great, quick read!
