Before Josh and Jordan Bell were streaking up and down the court, their father was learning his own moves. In this prequel to Newbery Medal winner The Crossover, Chuck Bell takes centre stage, as readers get a glimpse of his childhood and how he became the jazz music worshiping, basketball star his sons look up to. A novel in verse with all the impact and rhythm readers have come to expect from Kwame Alexander, Rebound will go back in time to visit the childhood of Chuck 'Da Man' Bell during one pivotal summer when young Charlie is sent to stay with his grandparents where he discovers basketball and learns more about his family's past.

Recensioner i media

"An eminently satisfying story of family, recovery, and growing into manhood."--Kirkus, STARRED review "Librarians who delighted at Crossover's popularity will be thrilled with this pitch-perfect follow-up...Kwame Alexander is unstoppable."--Booklist, STARRED review "As in his previous novels in verse, Alexander shows off his expert command of the format, employing staccato breaks with smooth rhymes that mimic the bounce and flow of the sport."--School Library Journal, STARRED review "A story filled with preteen angst, peer pressure, realistic family dynamics, and first romance is elevated to uncommon heights by a visceral exploration of grief and a search for confidence that pays off in spectacular ways."--Horn Book Magazine, STARRED review "This book will bounce off of the shelves."--VOYA "Alexander's non-rhyming poetry has propulsive, hard-hitting rhythm."--Publishers Weekly "Even without knowledge of the other titles, readers will find this to be a fully realized family drama that stands on its own merit."--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books "'Rebound' grapples with grief and loss, but never buckles under the weight of it...Readers familiar with 'The Crossover' will find themselves smiling as details of Charlie's early life emerge that give us glimpses of the man and father he will later become; those who haven't read it will find it a strong and satisfying stand-alone book about grief, love and the power of family." --The New York Times "His books pulse with musicality..." -Tina Jordan, The New York Times
