"Like lightning/you strike/fast and free/legs zoom/down field/eyes fixed/""on the checkered ball/on the goal/ten yards to go/can t nobody stop you/""can t nobody cop you " In this follow-up to the Newbery-winning novel THE CROSSOVER, soccer, family, love, and friendship, take center stage as 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!"

I read this book with high expectations from what I thought about one of Kwame Alexanders other books, Solo, and I was still blown away by this book, it was detailed and super interesting. #bolducbookworms

TorieStorieS @BlameJennyJane I wish that it had been good... not sure who the intended audience is for the SVH book, but it‘s not made for fans of the original books!! 😢😢😢 4mo
BlameJennyJane @TorieStorieS oh, that‘s so disappointing. I love the idea of a reboot... but some get it so wrong. It‘s too bad. 4mo
TorieStorieS @BlameJennyJane I mean, I will probably try a second one if it comes out because I am so optimistic... 4mo

It was a decent book. It wasn‘t as entertaining as I thought it would be. This book is mainly about this kid named Nicholas and what his life is about. He goes through lots of struggles and drama. If you like books based on someone‘s life I recommend this to you. I would rate this book a 6/10

Cfischbuch Thanks for your honest review. 4mo

Chrissyreadit I will just have to read the rest of these prompts over Summer. 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen I have one more to post—will it affect my entire #Booked2019 if I haven‘t posted it yet? (It‘s the prompt featuring a musician.) I‘m sorry to ask, but I was thinking that one had to finish by the end of the year. I‘ve had a bit of an upset, so things are at sixes and sevens at the moment. But it‘s fine, however it works...just want to ask so as not to be further confused (more than I already am). I have RCF: resting confused face. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 7mo

I have to admit, I totally forgot about #booked2019 in the first quarter as I was happy to have read anything at all 😅. Still, some of the books I read match some of the prompts:

6. New to me author: “The Left Hand of Darkness”

14. #muslimauthor: “Exit West” (as far as I know. It‘s also strongly implied the MCs are muslim)

15. #booktomovie: “Matilda”

17. Book gifted to me: “Emma”

LaLecture 19. #bookaboutaddiction: “Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” 23. #publicdomain: “Mansfield Park” (I have a print copy but finished the last bit on @SerialReader) 24. Political intrigue: “The Tropic of the Serpents” (quite a stretch as it‘s fantasy but politics play an important role as Isabella happens to uncover some not-so-nice political plans) (edited) 10mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great job! I personally think fantasy books often have a lot of political intrigue. 10mo
Cinfhen Fantastic🙌🏻without even trying #ReadingRockStar 10mo
4thhouseontheleft I‘ll be using a fantasy book for the political intrigue as well. Great job on covering a wide variety of the prompts! 🎉🙌🏽📚 10mo

I know there‘s still another day left in January but I managed to read all my winter prompts for #Booked2019 ☃️💕☘️I think the rainy days and my family having the flu contributed to my extra reading time.

1. Miss Marple doubles for an amateur detective for #pop19🔍
2. Yay for a feminist Little mermaid 👍🧜‍♀️
3. The Novel Cure- got it at Daunts, London, with my best friend of 30 yrs and it‘s about reading soothing the soul💕
4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bbphcf
5. Been meaning to read more O‘Farrell🍀
6. Leaving this open -always read lots of new authors✏️

LauraBeth Love your picks! 1y

Kickstart your 2019 reading journey with #Booked2019 , wholly owned and hosted by 3 of our fabulous Littens! Whether you‘re a seasoned reading challenge pro or a newbie, reading challenges can be fun and introduce us to new genres & authors we‘ve never read before.

I‘m enjoying (though not completed) my #Booked2018 and #LitsyClassics (not completed either) 🙄but I‘m so tempted and pumped up for this challenge. 🤔🤓

Cinfhen Thanks for that fantastic blurb xx you sold me 😂😂 1y
batsy These are some great prompts! And now I'm tempted by yet another challenge 😂 1y
Cathythoughts @batsy I‘ve never done one before... so I‘m v excited. I hope I don‘t drive everyone mad asking questions 🤦🏻‍♀️🙈.... 😂 1y

So then, l'm really terrible with challenges. I'm still working at all the challenges l took this year (and some goes back to May 😶) but this one looked too much fun to pass up.
Besides, l already have a title for all the Winter prompts 😆

I actually liked this one better than The Crossover. However, I now LOVE Kwame Alexander and his awesome ability to write in verse. I know of a handful of students who will love both of his books.

kellyann28 @Cinfhen What is Cli-Fi? 😳 1y
Cinfhen Genre-busting is a term for books that can‘t be pigeonholed - maybe it‘s a horror novel but it has a western setting or maybe crime novel set in an alternate universe. Geek Love, The Bone Clocks & Infinite Jest might be a few examples @VeganCleopatra This is the prompt that is gonna challenge me!! And my cohosts are @BarbaraTheBibliophage & @4thhouseontheleft 💜💜 1y
Cinfhen Cli-Fi stands for Climate Fiction @kellyann28 it‘s a book that deals with climate change/ global warming. Can be speculative or current. I‘m planning on reading 1y
kellyann28 @Cinfhen thank you! I feel silly for asking but that's a new one for me 😂 1y
Cinfhen Don‘t feel silly!!! I had to Google it myself @kellyann28 when I read that term in an article 😊 1y
Cinfhen I think BookRiot has a suggested list of Cli-Fi novels @kellyann28 and we will print links on the GoodReads group 1y
Cinfhen It‘s a bit more challenging this year @KarenUK can‘t wait to see what you come up with 🥰🥰🥰 1y
emilyhaldi So excited!! These are some challenging prompts... I‘m going to have to do some planning 🤓📝 1y

VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft thanks, I didn't think I had but I didn't want to double up. 14mo
LiterRohde Not to be sound lazy (but I am), do you have an editable version (Word/Excel) that I could use? I don‘t usually plan my reads. I am more like a plastic bag in the wind (unpredictable and bad for the environment) when it comes to how I read. If I‘m going to plan, a ready made list would be one last hurdle my lazy butt has to get over. Either way, I will be giving #Booked2019 my best shot. 14mo
Cinfhen We don‘t but I think @BarbaraTheBibliophage created one for herself and maybe she‘s able to share?!?! I‘m still not PC friendly 🦕🦖I prefer the pencil & paper @LiterRohde (edited) 14mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @LiterRohde @Cinfhen Thanks for tagging me. I do put all of my reads each year into a spreadsheet. I might be able to take mine and pull out just the Booked2019 stuff for you. But I‘ve got a TON of stuff going on right now, so I‘m not sure if the timing would suit you. 14mo
LiterRohde @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen No worries. I was thinking about the way I would do things if I were putting together this challenge and that would be to start with a typed document and hoping you do things the same way. I shouldn‘t expect that you do things the same way. No reason to make one from scratch. 14mo
4thhouseontheleft @LiterRohde I made a spreadsheet for myself on Google docs. I‘m happy to share a copy with you if you send me your contact info. 14mo
LiterRohde @4thhouseontheleft Thanks. I feel kind of silly now making more of this than I should have. Anyway, it‘s appreciated. alternativerohde@gmail.com. 14mo

#Booked2019 #Teaser So this may or may not be my first quarter reads for #Booked2019❣️Any ideas what the prompts could be??? Here‘s a few hints: 1.HAPPY NEW year 2. International Day of Women 3.St. Patty‘s Day 4. Brothers Grimm birthdays 5.🎧👂🏼Stay tuned for the first quarter unveiling....

TrishB I‘ve had the Egan one on the tbr since last year I think..... (edited) 1y
Cinfhen The Egan was my #BOTM Oct 2017 and the French was a #BOTM Nov 2016😜 @TrishB I‘m hoping to finally read them...are these still on your shelf @MicheleinPhilly ?!?!??! Maybe we 3 can BuddyRead? 1y
TrishB I‘m up for it. Just remind me in plenty of time cos I seem to forget every buddyread I agree! Doh..... 1y

Cathythoughts I will stay tuned ... I‘ve never done it & not sure how it works.. or how many books involved ... but it sounds like fun 👍🏻❤️📚 1y
Kalalalatja You sure know how to drive up the excitement 😄👏 1y
Cinfhen It‘s 24 prompts spread over the year broken down into quarters/ seasons. You are free to read the prompts in any “season” @Cathythoughts and for every prompt read u earn an entry into a $20 gift card for the end of each quarter. It‘s easy and fun and lots of open interpretation in the categories. I think you‘ll find the challenge fun but not pressured 😘 1y
Cathythoughts Thanks .. so that‘s 2 books per month .... and the interpretation is open ... great ! And there‘s a possible prize😊. I‘ll give it a whirl 2019 👍🏻 1y
RedxoHearts That sounds exciting! I love challenges 1y
VeganCleopatra When will sign ups etc be? 1y
Cinfhen Yay @RedxoHearts @Cathythoughts @VeganCleopatra I will make sure to keep you all in the know...we are still finalizing the sign up page 🤪 1y

I loved this one just as much as The Crossover. A coming of age novel told in verse that deals with themes of bullying, divorce, and friendship. I think this book would appeal to any young adult who is driven by sports, English teachers and librarians alike. In fact, this could be for anyone who's ever felt like their parents don't understand them. Maybe that's all of us.
