Product description

Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2019.

Hoop kings SOAR in kicks with wings. Game so sweet it’s like bee stings.

It’s 1988. Charlie Bell is mourning his dad, and struggling to figure out how he feels for his best (girl) friend, CJ. And when he gets into trouble once too often, he’s packed off to stay with his grandparents for the summer. There, his cousin Roxie shows him a whole new world: basketball. Charlie’s hooked. And he’s good. A legend on the courts is being born. But will Charlie know how to resist when trouble comes knocking once more?

  • By New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander
  • A coming-of-age tale of basketball, told in vibrant verse
  • Comic-style artwork by graphic artist Dawud Anyabwile
  • A prequel to The Crossover, which won the Newbery Medal
  • A follow-up to Booked, highly commended for the CLiPPA prize
