The One Where I Read • The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

Alexander Kwame uses rhyme and rap to entice and engage the reader. The poems in this collection are medium in length, entertaining and speak to children in a way they are likely to relate. Most of the passages in The Crossover are about events that can
happen in a child’s life; such as relationships with friends and family, basketball action on the court, middle school, race, sickness, and death.
