Rebound is a superb book ! It is set in 1988 in America and follows he main protagonist, Charlie who is 11.
Charlie is grieving his father after he suddenly died from a stoke. He completely gives up on the sport that he and his father used to play together all the time. None of Charlie's friends can cheer him up, not even his mother.
When Charlie gets into too much trouble, his mother sends him to Washington DC to live with his grandparents for the summer, hoping Charlie gets the structure he needs with the them while she has to work.
When Charlie meets Roxie a truly talented basket baller she manages to convince him to fill out her team.
I really enjoyed this book, it definitely has a moral behind it and it is a great book to read to pass the time, however, I found the ending very confusing as to who is speaking. Other than that it was a fantastic book!
