'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.

"This graphic-novel adaptation . . . offers powerful visuals to an already-cherished narrative. A slam-dunk thrill" * Kirkus * "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" * School Library Journal * "This adaptation evokes the imagery of the basketball, ensuring that readers feel Josh Bell's experiences come to life. An energetic and lively re-envisioning" * Booklist * "Alexander's complex, affectionate family portrait is augmented by Anyabwile's dynamic characterizations . . . the graphic version brings out the best in the original, as any good teammate should" * Publishers Weekly * "A beautifully measured novel of life and line" * The New York Times Book Review *
