The Crossover

The Crossover - Kwame Alexander

2015 Newbery Award Winner.  With the constraints of being a book in verse, The Crossover felt more like a short story or a novella rather than a novel. Some of the poems were clever, and there were some appealing moments, but I was underwhelmed by the overall production.
