In this middle grade novel-in-verse by the Newbery Medal-winning and Coretta Scott King Honor Award-winning author of The Crossover, soccer, family, love, and friendship take center stage as 12-year-old Nick learns the power of words when 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!

My 9-year old son introduced me to this book! He got it from the school library and couldn't put it down! He suggested that we got the audible version so I obliged! Awesome book!

What is in the Dragonfly box?

enjoyable teen fiction, you can't go wrong with Kwame Alexander to catch the issues of a young teenage boy. I still wonder what is in the dragonfly box. I guess you will just have to listen and make up your own mind. I have also listened to the crossover and will listen to his new book solo as soon as it comes out. I like that Nick actually struggles with life as most teenagers do but he does figure it out in the end.
