The New Kid: Unpopular Me

$9.99

$9.99

SHORTLISTED FOR THE SPEECH PATHOLOGY AWARDS 2019

New kids aren't cool.

Everyone knows that.

Eleven-year-old Sam is the new kid at school but he has a plan, or two, or three to make himself the most popular kid ever.

What you are about to read is unforgettable (lonely losers, frog underpants, human umbrellas, bad boys ...).

It's bumpy (jumping out a window is never a good idea).

It's the story of a kid who wants to be more.

P.S. Sam was not harmed (too much) during the telling of this story.

PRAISE FOR THE NEW KID: UNPOPULAR ME

"Supported by Matthew Martin's humorous illustrations this is a terrific junior fiction novel to get kids reading and enjoying it. It may even draw in a few of those reluctant readers." Children's Book Council of Australia
