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)

★“Possibly one of the most important graphic novels of the year.” (Booklist (starred review))

★“An engrossing, humorous, and vitally important graphic novel that should be required reading in every middle school in America.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

★“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))

★“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))

★ “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)

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)

"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)
