The Crossover by Kwame Alexander
Twins Jordan and Josh Bell are stars on the junior high basketball court, and inseparable off the court – until Jordan starts dating the new girl at school. Now, for the first time, the brothers are drifting apart, just as Josh discovers a devastating secret about their father and his own basketball career. Jordan and Josh slam-dunk their way through this novel in verse as they explore family, hip-hop, growing up, and brotherhood.
Attendees who read the book and participate in the group book review at the program will receive 3 hours of community service.
This program will take place in the library at the Longwood Junior High School and on Google Meet. A late bus will be provided at 4pm for participants who attend in person, but you must be registered to attend.
