We asked our Book Club for Kids summer intern, University of California Irvine student, Trianna Eichinger to pick her favorite episode. Trianna says she loves basketball, but not poetry, but these kids' discussion of "The Crossover" may have changed her mind. Kwame Alexander talks about poetry and our celebrity reader is a professional basketball player, LA Laker Tarik Black.

With host Kitty Felde.
