Jordan is full of anxiety at the start of seventh grade, and this full-cast audiobook production of Craft’s graphic novel gives a peek into his life. Loving parents played by Robin Miles and Guy Lockard encourage Jordan to give his new private school a try, and as Jordan gets caught in a whirlwind of new classmates, listeners hear young voices bouncing off the walls. Jordan, brightly voiced by Jesus Del Orden, loves to draw satirical comics about his life at the new school where he’s one of the few black kids—many are about microaggressions and straddling life at home in Washington Heights and at his swanky new school. A lively narration and scene-setting sound effects help make up for missing out on Craft’s illustrations. E.E.C. 2020 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
