New Kid Audio CD – Import, 5 February 2019
Speaking up about the unrepresented experience of so many students makes this a necessary book, particularly for this age group.-- "Booklist (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)"
[A] heartbreakingly accurate middle-grade tale of race, class, microaggressions, and the quest for self-identity...Engrossing, humorous, and vitally important.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
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.-- "School Library Journal (starred review)"
