"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?"… (més)

Placing high value on education, Jordan's parents decide to enroll him in a well-regarded private school, even though his neighborhood friends attend public school. But at Riverdale Academy Day School, he's not only the new kid, but the new kid of color. This graphic novel spans Jordan's first year at RAD, where he learns to navigate new friendships, academics, teachers of questionable integrity, and the cringey behavior on the part of (usually) well-meaning but ignorant peers, as well as stand up for himself and his friends as they bravely call out instances of discrimination.

This is REALLY good. The illustrations are expressive and meaningful — each detail of every panel is drawn with intention. Jordan's middle school situations, conversations and inner monologues, many of them surrounding the struggle to fit in, come across as realistic and authentic. As a middle-aged white woman it would be insensitive for me to say I identify with Jordan, but there were definitely some scenes that resonated strongly. My daughter read this last year as part of her 7th grade English curriculum, and this year I'm reading it to fulfill the Read Harder category "a comic that has been banned." Highly recommended. ( )

I loved how honest this book was. I wasn't sure at first what it was going to be like, but I trusted the awards on the cover, and knew it would be good. And it was good. ( )

This is every bit as good as [b:Roller Girl|22504701|Roller Girl|Victoria Jamieson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1447914095s/22504701.jpg|41951492] and [b:El Deafo|20701984|El Deafo|Cece Bell|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1423770455s/20701984.jpg|40021855] and I mean that as high praise.

I love that in the end we see there are two ways to look at being the titular new kid. There's being new in school, which is hard. And there's growing up, changing, so that you're like a new kid -- braver and happier than you were before.

Even though this doesn't have much of a plot (it's really just a typical school year with no major drama) I think kids will become engrossed in the ups and downs of Jordan's life. I appreciated that every character had some nuance and the whole thing struck me as very realistic (sometimes painfully so). It was also really funny and I felt like I could relate to Jordan and his friends.

I love that this book calls out the scarcity of fun middle grade books featuring African American heroes (see page 130-131) and it is itself a fun middle grade book featuring African American heroes.

Don’t let the title fool you. Seventh-grader Jordan Banks may be the new kid at his upper-crust private school, but this remarkably honest and accessible story is not just about being new; it’s unabashedly about race. Example after uncomfortable example hits the mark: casual assumptions about black students’ families and financial status, black students being mistaken for one another, well-intentioned teachers awkwardly stumbling over language, competition over skin tones among the black students themselves. Yet it’s clear that everyone has a burden to bear, from the weird girl to the blond boy who lives in a mansion, and, indeed, Jordan only learns to navigate his new world by not falling back on his own assumptions. Craft’s easy-going art and ingenious use of visual metaphor loosen things up considerably, and excerpts from Jordan’s sketch book provide several funny, poignant, and insightful asides. It helps keep things light and approachable even as Jordan’s parents tussle over the question of what’s best for their son—to follow the world’s harsh rules so he can fit in or try to pave his own difficult road. A few climactic moments of resolution feel a touch too pat, but Craft’s voice rings urgent and empathetic. Speaking up about the unrepresented experience of so many students makes this a necessary book, particularly for this age group. Possibly one of the most important graphic novels of the year.
