Poetry, Sports, YA Fiction

Booked by Kwame Alexander


Grades 8-12

Eighth grader Nick loves soccer and hates books. It’s ironic that his father is a verbomaniac (someone who is obsessed with words), and makes Nick read the dictionary on a daily basis.  If it weren’t for April, the girl Nick has a crush on, he probably would have never read a book of his own free will. April gives Nick a couple of books, and he loves them just as much as he loves soccer – well, almost. Alexander’s novel in verse is bound to hook soccer lovers and haters alike.
