Winner of the Newbery Medal, Coretta Scott King Author Award, and Kirkus Prize for Young Readers' Literature! Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Gene Luen Yang, New Kid is a timely, honest graphic novel about starting over at a new school where diversity is low and the struggle to fit in is real, from award-winning author-illustrator Jerry Craft. 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?… (mer)

I really enjoyed reading about this book. I can kind of understand how Drew and Jordan feel when people stare or glance their way when they talk about certain subjects that could seem "racist" or actually are. Especially when a lot of doesn't directly affect me or it's just a stereotype of POC. The story is simple enough for secondary or middle school to understand because teaching about racism, early will help create a supportive and accepting society. ( )

The 2020 Newbery winner tells the story of Jordan, a boy from Washington Heights who starts school at the posh Riverdale Day School. Craft shows the biases, both racial and class, with which Jordan and other students of color must contend on a daily basis. A great book for kids, but I'd also call it essential reading for any educator since it provides a first-hand account of what our students of color experience. While the story focuses on Jordan, we also see hints of the struggles other students face. A great book to read and discuss with students.

Funny and frustrating and really engaging. UPDATE: THRILLED it got the Newbery and the Coretta Scott King! ( )

I listened to the audio version of this book. It was performed by a full cast of voices. I thought the narrators did a great job and the story was easy to follow. The story was very realistic and insightful. ( )

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.
