New Kid by Jerry Craft.  New Kid won the 2020 Newbery Medal. It is about a young boy, Jordan, who transfers to private school- far from his own neighborhood-for seventh grade. As one of the few African American students in the school, he regularly deals with racism and microaggressions.  New Kid is a graphic novel that is accessible to students and adults alike. We also encourage parents to read it to share in our One School, One Book event.
