Have you dribbled a ball? Have you stepped between the lines on the court? Have you gotten that feeling when you run so fast you can feel the wind against your face, legs, and your whole body? In my book The Crossover by Kwame Alexander, one of the main characters Josh faces some consequences after what he did. The setting is mainly at the basketball court and just play basketball or at his house. Josh and his twin brother don’t really get along unless they play basketball. During this one basketball game, Josh had the ball and was going to pass to Jordan, but Josh's nickname is Filthy McNasty. So just before Josh was going to pass to Jordan, Jordan said can you just give me the ball Filthy McNasty? When Josh was so mad he threw the ball at Jordan as hard as he could and after that Jordan got a bloody nose. That night his mom suspended Josh from the team. Josh’s, again and again, is when people always call him Filthy McNasty and he will tell them to stop but he knows that will never happen. If you like basketball I think you would really like this book. It’s not too easy or too hard. It’s a little like a poem. It’s interesting if you like basketball. So if you like a just-right read, poems, and basketball this book is for you definitely.
