Told entirely in short poems/rap, this is the story of Josh Bell and his family—including his twin brother and their basketball star father.
I’m not big on basketball or poetry, but this was an incredibly cool way to tell a story, and a lot of the poems were really poignant. I loved the characters and their relationships. This book deals with some big issues, and I definitely cried, but it’s well worth the read. (It’s also a really quick read.)
