Discover Black History Month with Crossover by Kwame Alexander

Discover Black History Month with Crossover by Kwame Alexander

The Crossover


I cannot get enough of this friggin fraggin great book! This is a book that I downloaded on audio and listened to. Twice. Back To back. Thanks to a friend, I knew about the ending but still. When it happens. All. The. Feels. All the feels. if you wanna see my review, click here. It’s so good I just HAD to make sure I reminded you about it for Black History Month.

Crossover appeals to everyone of every color and every belief system. To be sure, I know very little about basketball, but that’s not even necessary. Alexander’s descriptions seep into your head and you can see the game and feel the bounce of the ball in your heartbeat.

I love me some Kwame Alexander! He’s my new bestie. (Be afraid KA, be afraid)

If this is your first read, Crossover totally counts toward the 2016 Diversity Reading Challenge.
