Great story, characters, poetry submitted by wendylawrencemorgan@gmail.com on June 13, 2015, 3:02pm Loved this book. It is fast-paced, in-depth, and written with gorgeous poetry. But not poetry that gets in the way of basketball games and great characters. Poetry that propels all of that forward. Awesomeness.

Loved It submitted by Merlin800 on July 2, 2015, 5:48pm This is a free verse book about twins who love playing basketball and things start to fall apart between them.

Amazing submitted by Bigal2212 on July 22, 2016, 9:11am I loved this book, it had a great storyline!

Meaningful submitted by enano.1 on July 24, 2016, 10:36am I really enjoyed this book; it was evenly paced, and if was very meaningful.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested into sports, and has time to really enjoy it.
The last thing I would like to say, is that this is a great book, and I think that it was definantly worthy of the Newberry Medal.
