Middle school is all about trying to fit in, and being the new kid at a prestigious private school when you would rather be going to the art school of your dreams is a challenge. Jordan's new school also doesn’t have many people who look like him or live where he lives, and the teachers confuse him with other kids of color. Follow Jordan's journey as he makes friends, continues to make art and grows in ways he is not expecting. This graphic novel is so current, so honest and so true, it should find a place on any middle school kid’s book list.
