THE CROSSOVER The Crossover, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jalyn Hall

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

He shoots! He scores! Jalyn Hall soars in this fresh version of Kwame Alexander's story of basketball-loving twin brothers. Josh and Jordan Bell are prodigies on the court, having been coached practically from birth by their father. Off the court, life isn't so simple. The local championship is heating up, and the pair are constantly worried about their dad's uncertain health. Hall extracts every ounce of poetry from the production's verse form and shares it with verve and energy. His voice bounces and slides like a smooth crossover dribble, especially when he's describing the joy of flight as the boys shoot the ball. When he switches gears to Josh's inner life, Hall infuses his tones with a teenager's brash uncertainty. N.M.
