By the end of the school year, my list of books that I wanted to read over the summer grew and grew. While I'm a little bummed I didn't get to all of them, I loved the time I spent with each one. One of my favorites was The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. I heard lots of good reviews about it and I even got to see him speak at a literacy conference. He was so great! So fun and inspiring! The book was great, too. If you like basketball, poetry, or are trying to get into poetry, or even if you like music, I think you'll like it. I'm still feeling this one long after I put it down. You have to see why.
Here is a picture of The Crossover and a few of the other books I read this summer.
