This story follows the young life of Charlie Bell after his father passes away. He is struggling in his life to work through this loss, and he is struggling against his mom as she tries to support him. His mom decides to send him to his grandparents for the summer and while he is there, he is finally starting to feel like himself again. With the help of his grandparents and his cousin Roxie, he begins to enjoy basketball again and get on the right path in life. ( )

Although this is technically a prequel to [b:The Crossover|18263725|The Crossover|Kwame Alexander|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1390427593l/18263725._SX50_.jpg|25723388], there are bits at the end that will make more sense if you read it afterwards. (It was also published after The Crossover.) Mr. Alexander uses poetry to beautiful and powerful ends. He paints a thorough heart-breaking picture of the grief of a young man losing his father and how to rebound in life. He as usual uses sports as a metaphor for life which not only makes abstract things like fairness, love, and grief more accessible but also more engaging. Especially great for teenage boys that might be "reluctant" readers. ( )

Didn't know how this would stack up to The Crossover but oh my goodness! Amazing! Loved the inclusion of the graphic novel-style pages and felt very drawn in by the story. Really well done and my favorite so far out of all of Alexander's books. ( )

I had no idea what to expect when I opened the cover of Rebound. It took about 10 pages for me to get used to the format -- this book is written in verse, in technical terms "a metrical line in a poetic composition", in other words, it's poetry. In addition, it weaves in a sort of comic strip/graphic novel element as the main character, Charlie Bell, imagines himself as a star basketball player. And it is an absolute pleasure to read.

This is the story of how Charlie Bell gets into trouble and goes to live with his grandparents after the death of his father. Reeling from the loss of his beloved dad, Charlie learns how to be a good friend, a good son and a good person. He doesn't always see eye-to-eye with his stern grandfather or his talented cousin, but he cherishes his time with his family and his best (girl) friend CJ. He learns to see that sometimes friends can be wrong, can do the wrong thing and that surrounding yourself with good people and good influences isn't just a good idea, it's your responsibility.

Rebound is a coming-of-age novel that is so well written, so keenly observed, so complex and yet simple at the same time, it is an absolutely absorbing and beautiful book to read. ( )

At first I really did like this book but I feel as thou I say that about a lot of the books that I first read.I didn't like the book because I don't like how he treated his mother even though that his father had just died and he has a right to be angry .I personally think there is a level of respect that you should never cross but that probably has something to do with the way I was raised.Toward the middle of the book I did enjoy it however .I found it quite interesting that Kwame went with what I feel like is a stereotype .he goes to his grandparents house which he hates .Then he turns his whole attitude around not just toward his mother but toward basketball and about being with his grandparents .Maybe it's just me over thinking it thou .

We start of at the very beginning of one of Kwames previous hits Crossover .This book tells the story.about how Jordan and Josh 's Father Chuck loses his father and how he gets over it and finds the lover for basketball and his future wife his childhood sweetheart .His father death is hiding him hard .He doesn't wasn't to do anything ,so his mom decides to send him to his father's parents house.He doesn't like at at first his grandparents are a little hard to get used to there ways .Sooner or later he will relish that he actually enjoys being there .He will also discover a love he knew he had but never tried to work on it .
