Hi, my name is Liora and I am an intern for L.B. Anne’s summer Author Apprentice Internship Program. This week I was assigned to read a book and write a blog about it. The book I chose this week is a graphic novel called New Kid written and illustrated by JERRY CRAFT.
New Kid is about a boy named Jordan Banks who moved to a new city and is starting a new school. Jordan is an artist who wants to go to art school but his parents want him to focus on his education rather than his art so they send him to the Red school.
When Jordan first got to the school students picked on him and singled him out. He felt very lonely. But he eventually made friends and started to actually enjoy the school.
I really enjoyed this book. I have many favorite parts and really liked the illustrations. I can relate to starting a new school and a lot of the feelings that went with it.
I highly recommend New Kid and I'm excited to read the second one in the series called Class Art.
