From the Publisher:

Before he's Chuck "Da Man" Bell, proud father of Jordan and Josh Bell, Charlie is a kid who dreams of basketball glory.  In his mind, he can steal, jump, dunk, and make the crowd go wild just like a pro baller.   But when tragedy strikes, Charlie can't help but make all the wrong moves.  Will a series of missteps keep him benched, or can he learn how to rebound?

The first book by Kwame Alexander that I read was Solo.  I loved the characters in Solo.  They pulled you in to their lives and made you want to care about them.  That book was beautiful and heartbreaking and I couldn't put it down.  Rebound  is the follow-up to his book The Crossover, also on our YA shelf-and still on my TBR list and I guess I better go get that read so I can get this one started!
