Summary

A cartoon-loving 12-year-old tries to settle into his new prestigious private school which his parents have sent him to instead of the art school he really wanted to go to.

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 enrol him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of colour 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. Middle school's hard enough without all the unspoken rules and expectations that come with being the new kid!

Can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighbourhood friends and staying true to himself?
