Jill Leia has it right - middle grade fiction told in verse. It is wonderful poetry - but it is also exceptional in the broader category of middle grade fiction, with many tags such as: sports, family, death of parent, basketball, rap, siblings, twins, coming of age...
Leia This is middle grade fiction told in verse.
S Realistic Fiction.
Yes, it's told in verse. (style)
Yes, it's middle-grade fiction. (audience)
But if I had to pick a genre, I'd go for realistic fiction.
Hunter C I wouldnt put this book in a specific genre because i thought in my opinion this book wasnt good enough to add a genre for!
LaurenB "The Crossover" is under fiction.
Alexandra Young contemporary realistic fiction and poetry
Cora I'm inclined to put it under poetry but fiction in prose sounds right, too. It won a few awards and is one of the books in our school district's Battle of the Books.
