Shortlisted for the Books Are My Bag 2020 Readers Awards 'With a bolt of lightning on my kicks . . . The court is SIZZLING. My sweat is DRIZZLING. Stop all that quivering. 'Cuz tonight I'm delivering,' raps twelve-year-old Josh Bell. Thanks to their dad, he and his twin brother, Jordan, are kings on the court. But Josh has more than basketball in his blood - he's got mad beats, too, which help him find his rhythm when it's all on the line. See the Bell family in a whole new light through Dawud Anyabwile's dynamic illustrations as the brothers' winning season unfolds, and the world as they know it begins to change.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This graphic-novel adaptation . . . offers powerful visuals to an already-cherished narrative. A slam-dunk thrill" * Kirkus *
"With an impressive attention to detail, the powerful, dynamic illustrations fizz with energy... If any book is likely to turn sports fans into book fans or convince readers that poetry is cool, this is it." * BookTrust *
"Alexander is a master of devastating and uplifting storytelling. Anyabwile's illustrations enhance a superb story - adding expressions and movement to an already great novel." -- Tricia Adams * LoveReading4Kids *
"A fresh look at the Newbery Medal-winning book . . . stunningly illustrated by Anyabwile. With lively poems that use basketball as a metaphor for life, this mix of free verse, hip-hop, and powerful artwork will resonate with fans of the original book and inspire a new audience of nascent players, artists, and poets" -- starred review * School Library Journal *
"Brilliantly brought to life by Anyabwile's energetic art, the intensity of the original story shines bright on every page." * Knights Of *
