My current book type: Suspense/thriller, Mysteries: Characters like me and different from me, plot-driven, seeking a favorite author

“Crossover” by Kwame Alexander is about a family that loves basketball. JB (Jordan) and Filthy McNasty (Josh) are brothers, actually twins. They love basketball so much, that when they play together their team wins the game.

I like the book so far because I love how the 2 brothers get along so well. There dad was an NBA basketball star and the boys are inspired by him to play basketball. They play basketball on their middle school team and they win every game. In conclusion, what I like the most about “Crossover” is their family relationship. They all love playing basketball except the mom but she likes watching the game and encourages the boys to play their best.

Three words that describe this book:
exciting, interesting, athletic
