"A novel about a soccer-obsessed tween boy written entirely in verse? In a word, yes. Kwame Alexander has the magic to pull off this unlikely feat, both as a poet and as a storyteller. " The Chicago Tribune

Can’t nobody stop you
Can’t nobody cop you…

In this follow-up to Newbery-winnerThe Crossover, soccer, family, love, and friendship take center stage. Twelve-year-old Nick learns the power of words as he wrestles with problems at home, stands up to a bully, and tries to impress the girl of his dreams. Helping him along are his best friend and sometimes teammate Coby, and The Mac, a rapping librarian who gives Nick inspiring books to read.  

This electric and heartfelt novel-in-verse by poet Kwame Alexander bends and breaks as it captures all the thrills and setbacks, action and emotion of a World Cup match! Now in paperback.
Kwame Alexander is a poet, educator, and the NYT bestselling author of 25 books, including the Newbery Medal-winningThe Crossover, which also received the Coretta Scott King Author Award Honor, The NCTE Charlotte Huck Honor, and the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award, and the Paterson Poetry Prize. www.kwamealexander....
