Chiefly illustrations.
Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade. As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds--and not really fitting into either one. Can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighborhood friends and staying true to himself?

Handles serious topics and makes you laugh out loud submitted by flemingj on June 14, 2019, 6:34pm Jerry Craft will be in A2 this weekend. Read this great graphic novel about Jordan (or is it Jason) finding his crew at his new school.

Wonderful middle-grade graphic novel! submitted by TeacherN on July 26, 2019, 6:47pm I'm a middle school teacher and a mother of a middle school boy. My son and I both loved this book! It was funny and sweet, and it gave us the opportunity to talk about the micro-aggressions kids of color experience. I have bought a copy of my classroom and I expect it will probably disappear as all well-loved books eventually do.

Thrilled at the Newbery win submitted by Marian on June 13, 2020, 1:43pm Thoroughly enjoyed hearing Jerry Craft speak several different times at last year's A2CAF (so sorry it couldn't be held this year) and purchased two copies of "New Kid" to share with others. Loved the story, characters, and art . Looking forward to his next book due out in October.

Doesn't pull punches submitted by Xris on January 11, 2021, 8:59pm I like how the author talked about Jordan's problems fitting in and didn't hide the racism behind some of it. And I'm glad he made friends, backed them up, and ended up having an okay time there.
