The Crossover: 2015 Newbery Medal Winner!

February 3rd, 2015 by

newbery-medalRemember when we mentioned a book called The Crossover by Kwame Alexander as one of the most talked-about books of 2014?

And then remember when we mentioned it just a few weeks later as a finalist for this year’s Cybils Awards?

Well, guess what — now we’re gonna mention it AGAIN because apparently the universe just can’t stop with this book already! As announced yesterday, The Crossover is winner of the 2015 Newbery Medal!

So basically, this book is like the equivalent of a movie that’s been hot all awards season and then it goes and wins the Oscar for Best Picture. Way to go, Kwame Alexander!

The Crossover by Kwame Alexander

The Crossover_Kwame Alexander

As you can tell from the cover, this book is about basketball. But also, it’s about family and dealing with tough surprises and growing up. Through verse with the energy of rap, Josh narrates his life on and off the court with his twin brother, JB.

It’s worth mentioning that The Crossover was also named a 2015 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book. Each year, the Coretta Scott King Awards recognize an African American author and illustrator of outstanding books for children and young adults. So, yeah… I guess you could say this is a pretty darn good book.

But let’s not forget this year’s Newbery Honor books:

And actually, Brown Girl Dreaming won the Coretta Scott King Author Award this year. And El Deafo is a Cybils finalist. And both of them were part of our Best of 2014 round-up. So I think it’s safe to say these are pretty darn good books too! So read them!

Or have you already read any of these books? Leave a comment and let us know!
