A novel in verse about words, sports, and growing up. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like this!
Kwame Alexander is back with another novel in verse, this time featuring soccer.

The poetry flows so seamlessly. I loved the friendship between Nick and Coby, the soccer references, and the constant footnotes of big words.

Not quite as satisfying as Alexander's Newbery-winning The Crossover, but a wonderful read nonetheless. The characters are real and appealing and their experiences will resonate with upper elementary and middle school readers. Don't be put off by the poetry format - it works so well!

"I laughed, I cried..." No really I did! Amazing book - but what was in Mac's box???
