A sports novel that touches your heart.

"Crossover" is a wonderfully written, poetry style story about a younger high school basketball player. His name is Josh Bell AKA Filthy McNasty. Josh is a twin brother, he is an amazing basketball player, and he is a smart kid. He was living the life.


But after he uncovered a truth about his father everything began to go downhill. He has made some mistakes throughout the story, which did effect him in his life plus his families lives. Josh goes through a hard time with his brother and his dad but he still finds a way to push through it and never gives up.


This is a sports novel that touches your heart. I would definitely recommend this book to sports loving readers and for those who want to read something inspiring and heartfelt.
