The book 'Rebound', written by Kwame Alexander, is a fantastic book about a boy dealing with the sudden loss of his father. The book itself is written in verse with a couple of comic panels mixed in. The story is beautiful and the writer successfully conveys the emotions of the main character (Charlie) through to the reader.
A lot of young people can relate to Charlie, through being unable to express their emotions in a healthy manner. It showcases life in the poorer parts of America and helps empathise with the less fortunate.
In conclusion, Rebound is a fantastic book that every child should read. It teaches to persevere and never give up.
