Josh and Jordan Bell are the two young basketball stars on their middle school team. They really light up the court together.

Hopefully their dad will be there to cheer them on. Kwame Alexander's writing style is very cool. The whole book is made out of poems. From one to the other. Personally, I think it is a great way to communicate the plot. It gives the book a great flow to it. Here are some quotes to give you an idea of how the book is written. “In this game of life your family is the court and the ball is your heart. No matter how good you are, no matter how down you get, always leave your heart on the court.” Another quote is, “Josh Bell is my name. But filthy McNasty is my claim to fame. Folks call me that ‘cause my game’s acclaimed, so downright dirty, it’ll put you to shame. My hair is long, my height’s tall. See I’m the next Kevin Durant, Lebron, and Chris Paul.” The crossover took me on an emotional rollercoaster. At some points I was laughing at some I was sad. Some parts of the book were even inspirational. Everyone would love to read this emotional book. The author, Kwame Alexander is also very accomplished as well.
