I picked this up because it was about classmates in a prestigious NYC school. I didn't even realize that it was part of a series OR that it was a cool graphic novel!
I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was funny, heartfelt and REAL. Having the graphic novel break into sidebar graphic novels which pay homage to the styles of various other juvenile fiction works was really neat as well.
Now, I've got to go back and read the award winning first book of the series, New Kid! ( )

Why Read It: Class Act should appeal to any kid in middle school. It is a fun and engaging read to help them survive middle school. It also confronts issues of systemic racism head on. It is also a great way for parents to look at the issues their kids may be facing, and would be a great book to discuss at home. ( )

A weighty and introspective sequel to the Newbery-winning "New Kid." This focuses on Drew's perspective. He feels the weight of being a dark-skinned Black boy of modest means at a wealthy private school. Colorism, microaggressions, and the stark contrast to white Liam's well-heeled life have Drew feeling invisible and isolated as he struggles to find his place in a privileged world. The scene with the cop pulling over Jordan's dad hits hard and real and is probably the most important scene in the book for young readers of all backgrounds to see. ( )

Thank you Edelweiss for the ARC!

Class Act is, as the name suggests, a real class act. I laughed so hard at the all-too-real 8th-grade reality of being slightly weird but trying to make and keep friends and find oneself.

As a teacher, I cringed at all the failed school attempts at diversity and inclusion as they are sadly a bit too real. Jerry Craft even managed to create a kid-friendly version of Prison Mike scene...with donuts of course!

I loved the friendship throughline as Drew, Liam and Jordan navigate some uncomfortable topics. Overall, an absolutely joyful reading experience.

PS: All the subtle (and not so subtle) nods to other books and authors were really fun! ( )

Drew is a straight-A student starting eighth grade at a prestigious private school, and he's got some learning to do about acceptance this year: acceptance of his friends and of himself in Class Act by author Jerry Craft.

After being rather blown away by the utter graphic-novel awesomeness that is New Kid by Craft, there was pretty much no way I wasn't going to read this following middle grade novel.

Like its predecessor, this humorous story (with lots of Easter eggs and background jokes and perks!) has a way of pausing to punch you in the gut at times with something other than belly laughs. I cracked up here, *gulped* there, and cringed pretty hard at some of the intensely awkward moments with well-intentioned characters who've got little to no idea how seriously they're putting their foot in it.

Also like the book that comes before it, this story examines the ways that people (especially children/adolescents) of different colors and classes treat each other, weaving it into some of the everyday joys and trials of friendship, family, and growing up. However, I found myself getting emotionally lost at times, not getting the best sense of plot or focus in the story.

Still, the main point comes across by the end, and there's certainly room for another novel if these characters need a revisit. I'd highly recommend reading New Kid first, if you haven't. ( )
