Translation of: The crossover.
"El fenómeno del básquetbol, Josh Bell, y su hermano gemelo, Jordan, son los reyes de la cancha, con esos crossovers inesperados que hacen llorar a los jugadores más duros. Pero cuando Jordan conoce a la nueva chica del colegio, lazos entre los gemelos se empiezan a desanudar. El baloncesto y la hermandad se entrelazan para mostrarles a Josh y Jordan que la vida no viene con un manual de jugadas y que, a veces, el asunto no es ganar."-- Provided by publisher
Fourteen-year-old twin basketball stars Josh and Jordan wrestle with highs and lows on and off the court as their father ignores his declining health.

*Starred Review* Twins Josh and Jordan Bell are both talented basketball players, encouraged by their parents on and off the court. Their father, once a European basketball star, now spends his time giving the twins advice about the game, as well as life. As they navigate middle school, Jordan grows more interested in girls, and the brothers begin to drift apart. Josh discovers that his father is hiding something that, when finally brought to the surface, threatens to change their lives forever. As Josh and Jordan face the all-too-real possibility of life without their father, he urges them never to forget that family is the court and your heart is the ball. Written in verse that ebbs and flows between explosive and calm, filled with humor and heartbreak, this lovely Spanish translation of the Newbery Medalâwinning novel is sure to inspire a new group of young readers, all while teaching them about life, loss, and basketball. Highly recommended for Spanish middle-grade and young-adult collections. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
