Book: Class Act
Author: Jerry Craft
This is my 94th read for the year.
This is the follow up book to Craft's "New Kid". This story centers around Drew, whose Grandmother has always told him that he will have to work "twice as hard to be half as good". He goes to the privledged school of Riverdale Academy, but he isn't privledged himself. He attends the academy on an academic scholarship and isn't sure how he fits in among his peers.
He is invited to his friend Liam's house for the day and finds out how wealthy his friend really is. This puts a strain on their friendship and their mutual friend Jordan tries to figure out a way to bring them back together.
My daughter, Finley, and I have been really enjoying reading this middle grade graphic novels together. We enjoyed "New Kids" quite a bit, so when we discovered this book on an outing the other day, we had to have it. IT was just as good as Craft's first novel. It has a nice message, some good humor, and some good talking points. I hope he continues to write more, because we are now fans.
Check it out.
