Professional reviews

"Author Kwame Alexander (THE CROSSOVER) brings a natural energy to his reading, which, while not quite as polished as a professional narration might be, is still spirited and engaging. Written in verse, his novel is both smart and accessible. Middle-grade listeners are bound to recognize themselves in 12-year-old Nick, who loves soccer and hates words (his dad is a famous linguist who's always on him to read his dictionary of "weird and wonderful words"). As Nick struggles with balancing school, soccer, and problems at home, Alexander's poems revel in wordplay and express the gamut of genuine emotions. Listeners will be rooting for Nick through all the highs and lows. It's a great choice for listening together as a family. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
