Rebound (The Crossover 0.5) Reviews

  • Nicole

    My goodness, does Kwame Alexander know how to write. I could not put this down, even with tears streaming down my face. I cannot wait to share this one with my students. They are all big fans of his work, and I know this is no exception.

  • Maria Losee

    If you read CROSSOVER, you’ll love REBOUND. Kwame Alexander is nothing short of a magician with words. The natural rhythm of language, the raw emotion, the take-your-breath-away-have-to-read-again-and-pages will capture even the most reluctant tween and adolescent readers. This is the back story of Charlie, dad to Jordan and Josh Bell. Allow yourself and hour or two, because you’ll read this one cover to cover.

  • Christina Hanson

    You know, Chuck,

    he says.

    You’re not always gonna swish.


    You gonna miss some.

    Heck, you gonna miss a lot.

    That’s the way the real world works.

    But you gotta grab the ball and

    keep shooting. You understand?


    I tell you what, though,

    you’ll make a lot more

    than you miss if

    you’re not always going for

    the flash

    and flair.

    Try using

    the backboard, son.

    You got me.

    You got your grandmother.

    You got Roxie.

    You got your mother.

    You got all of us,

    remember that!

  • Jennifer Guyor Jowett

    Kwame Alexander slam dunks it again with this prequel to The Crossover. Rebound stands on its own with a heart-tugging, powerful story, yet it blends seamlessly with its partner novel. The importance of family, finding one's own path, and struggling with choices guide the Chuck Bell's character arc. Readers will leave pumped up and satisfied.

  • Kristen

    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

  • Mrs. Krajewski

    Charlie Bell, who later is the great Chuck “Da Man” Bell in The Crossover, is a young boy of 12 who just lost his father. He doesn’t know how to grieve, and neither does his mother. They struggle to be around one another so much so that eventually Charlie’s mother decides to send him to spend the summer with his paternal grandparents in Washington, D.C. She believes it will help both of them heal. At first, Charlie is quite reluctant to leave his best friends CJ and Skinny, but soon he enjoys sp ...more

    Many know how much I love Newbery Medal winner The Crossover for its ability to turn middle grade readers into readers of poetry. Alexander used numerous poetic devices and at least seven forms of poetry to tell the story of a year in the life of two teenage basketball players (J.B. and Josh Bell) and their parents. Usually when an author takes a stab at writing a sequel, some of the magic of the first book is lost. That is not the case in this prequel/sequel.

    Alexander was smart not to approach

  • Joe

    This is a review of the ARC.

    The first poem in Rebound is a lovely series off fleeting, non-rhyming couplets that capture a time, a place, a memory. I pulled the book to my chest. "This is it," I thought.

    The second poem in Rebound captured the manic, frenetic energy of Alexander's masterful The Crossover: it was all sound and feeling, energy and zip, breathlessly exciting poetry. I pulled the book to my chest. "I want to savor this," I thought.

    Then I got to the first comic, which, in the ARC, is
