Crossover vs. Gabi

I have to say that I really enjoyed both books, however, Crossover was the one that I just couldn't put down. In saying that, I realize that it played right into my love of basketball, but I can easily picture the connection that our students will make to the characters and the poetic style.

Gabi was real, honest and a bit raw at times... I enjoyed it, but didn't feel the same need to keep reading, and struggle to envision it as part of our library collection. My vote is for Crossover to move on.
