    My heeeeaaaarrrtttt.

    Y'all know I love The Crossover (for obvious reasons!). This companion book takes a step into the past, telling the story of Josh and JB's dad when he was a middle-schooler. Reeling from the sudden loss of his father, Charlie Bell is struggling. His mom's unable to reach him and afraid that he's going to end up in trouble, so she sends him to spend the summer with his grandparents in Washington DC. There, Charlie gets to know his family and, against his better judgment, star

    Kwame kills it with this Crossover prequel about the boys’ dad. I loved it. And per usual, cried.

    I think students will especially love the graphic novel pages that are inserted throughout. It’s a hybrid structure that we have not encountered before.....lyrical and graphic novel!

    I'm not going to say anything about this book until you've had a chance to read it.

    But, I can tell you this. . .I am so happy. . .like so many of you. . .to get in on the "ground floor" with Kwame Alexander. Reading those first books of a shining star of literature for young people.

    REBOUND is special. And it hits every post a prequel should hit.

    Oh. I've said too much.

    This prequel to The Crossover is the story of Josh and JB's father, Chuck Bell. It is the summer of 1988 and twelve-year-old Chuck Bell is not coping well with the death of his father. His mother is at her wit's end, and sends him to spend the summer with his grandparents in Washington, DC. They are still grieving the loss of his father (their son) as well, but showing it in different ways. When Chuck first get there all he wants to do is stay in his room and read comic books like he had been do ...more

    I loved reading Rebound. Especially the ending.

    And his grandpa. Love him fiercely.

    And the comics (poetry slam in comics!!!!!)

    And the corny jokes -- burst out laughing in several places (too much sax & violins!)

    But really, the power of metaphor to open your heart.

    For all of us when we feel storm-beaten and shattered, how we can hold onto hope. Thank you.

    There are verse novels, and then there are verse novels written by Kwame Alexander. I was at a speaking event of Alexander's when I found out his next book was a prequel to The Crossover, and I may or may not have squealed like a fangirl. Rebound has the same rhythm, the same flow, the same punch in the gut--and even though it takes place three decades ago, Chuck's story will be just as relatable and accessible to my students.

    I felt quite emotional reading this one--probably because 1) Like Chuc

    I didn’t think this was possible, but I love this even more than The Crossover. This prequel is expertly written as it makes you forget what you know is coming, but is also so very satisfying as it puts some bows on some answers.

    The writing is phenomenal, but the characters are even better. I love every, single one..yes, Charlie/Chuck, mom, CJ are all amazing, but the grandparents stole the show for me. Granddad is sassy and sweet and tender and tough.

    You’ll love it.
