This book is great for 4th graders and up. Its an awesome book about a kid who faces struggles as he goes to a new school. He faces challenges like bullies but he also makes friends. It has awesome illustrations and I would definitely have this book in my future classroom

This graphic novel is one of two in this series. It illustrates Jordans life being one of the only middle school student of color. It goes through his struggles and the highs and lows of friendship. I would recommend this book to 3rd grade and up as a partner read book. I can see this book building students reading skills and this book teaching students about the art of graphic novels.

I think this book is more for intermediate level and middle school students. The book is about a kid in New York going to a new private school. in this book he faces what it is like to be the new kid, face a lack of diversity in his school, racism from the children at school, and trying to make new friends while maintaining the friends he already had.

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.
