Whenever there is a new Kwame Alexander book being released, you can bet that there are happy dances being done in the library. Newbery Medal winner Alexander returns to the family from The Crossover and turns back the clock. This prequel focuses on the boys’ father, Charlie, and the special summer that changed his life. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie only cares about three things: comics, arcades, and jazz. His mother is worried that school and his future don’t feature and ships him off to Washington, DC to live with his grandparents in the hopes that this will sort him out. Rebound is a mixture of Alexander's signature poetry and comics that will entrance reluctant reader and bookworm alike.
