The Crossover Graphic Novel

Josh is king of the beats – and of the basketball court. A sizzling tale of rap, rhymes, rhythm and shooting hoops. “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. And 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. But as the brothers’ winning season unfolds, their whole world suddenly changes…
