Jerry Craft圖像小說New Kid系列新作-New Kid  Class Act


New York Times bestselling author Jerry Craft returns with a companion book to New Kid, winner of the 2020 Newbery Medal, the Coretta Scott King Author Award, and the Kirkus Prize. This time, it’s Jordan’s friend Drew who takes center stage in another laugh-out-loud funny, powerful, and important story about being one of the few kids of color in a prestigious private school.

Eighth grader Drew Ellis is no stranger to the saying “You have to work twice as hard to be just as good.” His grandmother has reminded him his entire life. But what if he works ten times as hard and still isn’t afforded the same opportunities that his privileged classmates at the Riverdale Academy Day School take for granted?

To make matters worse, Drew begins to feel as if his good friend Liam might be one of those privileged kids. He wants to pretend like everything is fine, but it's hard not to withdraw, and even their mutual friend Jordan doesn't know how to keep the group together.

 

紐約時報暢銷書作家傑里·克拉夫出版《上學行為》是《轉學生》的姊妹書,獲得2020年紐伯瑞獎章,科麗塔·史考特·金恩作家獎和科克斯獎。 這次,喬丹的朋友德魯,身為私立名校少數有色人種,在另一個爆笑、有趣、強大且重要的故事中扮演主角。
 
八年級學生德魯·埃利斯的例子並不陌生:“必須付出兩倍的努力才能打平。” 他的祖母讓他想起了自己的一生。但如果他付出十倍努力,卻仍然沒有其他私立河谷高級中學的特權同學所享有的機會,那該怎麼辦呢?
 
更糟的是,德魯開始感到自己的好朋友連恩可能是有特權的孩子之一。他想假裝一切都很好,但很難不退出,甚至他們共同的朋友喬登也不知道如何他們友誼維持下去。
