A graphic novel within a graphic novel, Jordan is an aspiring artist who is now a minority student in an exclusive private school. He sketches his "thoughts" in diary-like entries as he encounters issues of racism, elitism, and social awkwardness at school.
A brilliant, very funny, and insightful book.
Illustrations are amazing.
Newbery award worthy.
