Good morning people! Today, I get to go to the library during school for a book club. I’m pretty excited for it, and can’t wait to talk to other people about the book “New Kid” Yesterday, I finished a book called “Beautiful Blue World” by Suzanne LaFleur (same other for “Counting to Perfect”) and I really enjoyed it. This morning, I got the sequel “Threads of Blue” from the library, and am excited to find out what happens to the main character, Mathilde. Last week, I had an orchestra performance, and I think we did pretty well. We have a great teacher, and most of us are very good at out instruments. Currently, I play the violin, but I might want to learn viola. Should I? Please tell me in the comments!
Okay, so nobody answered my question if I should keep doing book reviews, so I’m going to keep doing them until someone asks me to stop.
The book is called “New Kid” and it is by Jerry Craft. This is a very quick read and I finished it in one afternoon. Here’s the summary from amazon:
“Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade.
As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds—and not really fitting into either one. Can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighborhood friends and staying true to himself?”
This book isn’t my favorite, but it has received an award, so I still recommend this book.
