Editorial Reviews

Review

“Funny, sharp, and totally real! Jordan Banks is the kid everyone will be talking about!” -- Jeff Kinney, Author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

"This story captures the tensions that come with being a person of color in a traditionally white space." -- Publishers Weekly

“Genuine characters propel this funny, warm, biting, fearless story. Entertaining and insightful, it will surely offer affirmation for some readers, revelation for others.” -- Cooperative Children’s Book Center

★ “Award-winning author/illustrator Jerry Craft confronts elitism, microaggression, racism, socioeconomic disparity and white privilege in a familiar setting. His preteen audiences will undoubtedly recognize and empathize with Craft’s memorable cast.” -- Shelf Awareness, (starred review)

“Craft’s full-color comics art is dynamic and expressive. This school story stands out as a robust, contemporary depiction of a preteen navigating sometimes hostile spaces yet staying true to himself thanks to friends, family, and art.” -- Horn Book Magazine

“This beautifully crafted work captures ‘tween angst, recognizes everyday and systemic injustice, and challenges everyone to do better by every kid." -- The San Francisco Chronicle

★“This is more than a story about being the new kid—it’s a complex examination of the micro- and macroaggressions that Jordan endures from classmates and teachers. Highly recommended for all middle grade shelves.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

“An honest and compelling read for any kid looking for a place to belong.” -- Scholastic Teacher Magazine

★“This engaging story offers an authentic secondary cast and captures the high jinks of middle schoolers and the tensions that come with being a person of color in a traditionally white space.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

New Kid is at once tender and tough, funny and heartbreaking. Hand this to the middle-grade reader in your life right away.” -- The New York Times Book Review
