Craft gives some of the characters from the first book a little more room to breathe here, and we pick up again with Jordan's story in some threads (complete with Jordan's sketch pages, as seen in the first book), but the focus is on Drew this time. We also learn more about Liam, and other characters. The author/artist catches our eye with these bright pages and large, inviting panels.
Craft has a talent for addressing issues of social justice and identity in very accessible ways through his work, and points to the stereotyping that is so common in our schools and in our society. Class Act continues that insightful commentary and provides many moments for reflection and discussion about our assumptions and biases.
It's also a fun read, which carries the tone from New Kid. In this book, Jerry Craft makes a move that honors comics and graphic novels as we begin each new chapter (and that's all I will say about that, other than it's clever and made me laugh out loud several times).
There's a lot to share, talk about, and enjoy in Class Act, and I know I'll be rereading this book soon. I'm also thrilled to find out there is another entry on the way and I'm looking forward to seeing what Jerry Craft does with this universe as he expands on the stories and provides moments of commentary and wisdom about our world. I'm excited to see these characters grow!
