Review by Annalee Reeder.
Rebound is about a boy named Chuck Bell. Chuck's dad has just died and his mom has become distant from him. His mom sends him to his grandparents to live for the summer. There he learns how to play basketball and also he learns how to respect the people around him.
This book is really good. I think this book would be good for fifth graders and up. I think that there are some parts where younger kids would get confused on how it was written as a poem.
