The Crossover

The Crossover, by Kwame Alexander, tells the story of twins Josh and Jordan, who are two basketball stars in their junior high. It is told through the point of view of Josh, who is struggling with adolescence and constantly competing against his brother.

The setting of this story is very believable for a realistic fiction novel. It takes place mostly at school and the characters home. The grounded and detailed settings make this book easy to follow. The style of being written in a blend of a narrative and poetry give it a unique style that makes it interesting to read.
