Rebound | Sticky Note Reviews

I was so excited when I found out that Kwame Alexander was writing a prequel to The Crossover. My students were hoping for a sequel, I’m sure, but I already have one excited about Rebound. And I’m excited to get a copy (that isn’t from the library) to share with him.

I did most of my reading of this book while I was in the barber shop waiting to get my hair retwisted. While I was reading, I might have taken to Twitter to say some things, like this:

And my Sticky Note Review for Rebound by Kwame Alexander:

#bookaday Rebound by Kwame Alexander. #SNRtbs It’s another beautiful novel in verse that will tear all of your heartstrings apart. I also love how Chuck’s love of comic books was incorporated into the poems. I’d love to see more graphic poems like that [edit: if you know of any, please tell me. I’m serious]. Rebound is like a meditation on (1) how family shapes the characters in this world. I kept seeing how Josh and JB were influenced by their father (Chuck) and grandfather. And (2) how people handle grief differently. It reminded me of how I feel when all the cousins in my family are together. ————————————————— #blackbookblogger #bookstagram #bookreview #booksofinstagram #reading #reader #stickynotereviews #stickynotereview
