In New Kid, winner of the Newbery Medal, the Coretta Scott King Author Award, and the Kirkus Prize, you’ll meet twelve-year-old Jordan Banks as he starts seventh grade at the prestigious Riverdale Academy Day School—where diversity is low and expectations are high.

And the saga soars to new heights in School Trip, where Jordan, Drew, Liam, and their rest of their friends all feel like the “new kid” as they spend an entire week in Paris.
