Kwame’s writing style is like a young boy sharing about what goes on in his life. He talks about what goes on in basketball and with his family and friends. Kwame’s writing style makes the reader feel like they are best friends with the main character because they know so much about their life. The author has many good quotes in the story. My favorite is “ If you’ve stopped playing the game, you already lost.” This is my favorite quote because it’s very inspirational and teaches to never give up. The Crossover- made me smile, tear up a little and get to learn a lot about what the life of a teen basketball player is like. This book is very great and I would recommend it for everyone!
