To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's a book that deserves the laurels that it has received for its innovative structure. A Newbery Medal-winner, written in rap, in verse, in the language of a 12-year-old that one doesn't often get to read in this part of the Asia, the novel held great promise for me. However, I know nothing of rap and very little of basketball. The writing style and the references to strategies of the sport were something I had to get used to. Having said that, the rhythm is great. The writer paints the angst, the stubborn confusion that goes on in the mind of the protagonist. In the end, he gets your heart racing with the anxiety of wondering what happens next. A must-buy if you have a young, basketball player at home.
Ein sehr schönes Buch, welches man ohne Probleme auch in einem Rutsch durchlesen könnte. Der Autor schafft es, eine detaillierte Story zu erzählen und das "trotz" des besonderen Stiles. Der Gedichtstil bringt etwas frisches und leichtes mit. Als Teenager kann ich mich gut mit den Gefühlen des Protas Josh identifizieren. Eine sehr berührende Geschichte, die bei mir definitiv Eindruck hinterlassen hat.
