Kelso's October 2018 pick
Jarrett writes about his complicated family life growing up in Worcester, MA. His mother is a heroin addict, in and out of jail and rehab homes, his father was never in the picture (he wasn't even listed on Jarrett's birth certificate until several years later) leaving Jarrett to be raised by his brash, opinionated, and loving grandparents. The color palate is soft, somber, and the line work is brushed with a hurried chaos that beautifully conveys the tension and drama surrounding the background of young Jarrett's life.
Hey, Kiddo is a powerful, gorgeous, articulate graphic memoir from the creator of the Lunch Lady series (yes, that comic your middle grade kids are obsessed with) that shows readers that you can still love your imperfect family and survive with your spirit unbroken.
Although this book does have content that could at the very least be considered PG-13 (depictions of drug use, a drawing of violence, chain-smoking grandparents, swearing) I do highly recommend this book to children (generally 10+ but anyone younger should have a grownup read it with them). I also recommend this book to everyone who has ever had an imperfect childhood or complicated family relationships - chain-smoking, swearing, grandparents included.
