The audio adaptation of this middle-grade graphic novel uses a full cast and sound effects to draw listeners into Jordan’s story of starting 7th grade in a new private school. It’s always hard being the new kid in school — and that’s especially true if you’re feeling isolated in a school where you’re black, and mostly everyone else is white. You’ll hear narrator Jesus Del Orden’s bright, youthful voice as Jordan, Robin Miles and Guy Lockard as his parents, and a full cast animating classrooms full of bustling students in a story that’s funny, serious, and heartwarming.
