What a fun read! Norris is a self-described Black French Canadian teenager who moves from Canada to its polar opposite: Austin, Texas. Norris’s lightning-quick wit and acerbic cynicism had me laughing through every chapter while he navigates the classic stereotypes and humiliations of high school. Through his journey, he discovers the profound truth of who he is and who his new classmates are… possibly friends.
