New Boy AUTHOR Tracy Chevalier characters é 108 Schoolyard where kids fall in and out of love with each other before lunchtime and practice a casual racism picked up from their parents and teachers Peeking over the shoulders of four 11 year olds Osei Dee Ian and his reluctant girlfriend Mimi Tracy Chevalier's powerful drama of friends torn apart by jealousy bullying and betrayal will leave you reeling. Received an ARC from Penguin Random House Canada in exchange for a fair reviewTracy Chevalier hit the right notes in this retelling of Othello New Boy is a perfect depiction of how a day or two in the life of a child can feel like an eternity This story was beautifully told and it reinvigorated some of that painful nostalgia inside me that I had forgotten about Chevalier remembers exactly what it was like to be a child trying to navigate the playgroundNew Boy is a story about an elementary school aged black boy named Osei who attends a new school with only a month remaining in the school year He is the only black student at this schoolChevalier hit the nail on the head regarding childhood politics There are social hierarchies among children political mind games sabotage love anger joy and all the real emotions children feel The most profound aspect of this novel for me was the accurate depiction of adult versus child paradigms and how they clash especially with regard to race I found that if you were to strip away the adults in this novel and have only children remaining race would not have been a factor at all Really the only people who took issue with a black boy in an all white school were the adults certain teachers and parents alike And if there is a child on the playground that showed racist tendencies it was correctly shown that those attitudes were learned Children learn racism from adults it is not an innate concept I also really enjoyed the roller coaster ride that was the romantic drama Within the course of a day or two relationships between the children can be built and destroyed and vice versa We all experience the political mind games of childhood romance the secret sabotage by someone who wants to date the person you re dating the feeling that your love will last forever only to be torn away a few hours later Hours feel like years when you re that youngThis story was at times heartening but than anything it was heartbreaking I don t often truly cry when I m reading but this book made me cry I felt like I was right there in Osei s shows reliving childhood all over again We can all relate to being the centre of attention as a child It s especially painful because as a child we want to blend in we do not want to stand out This is made particularly true for Osei who stands out simply because of the colour of his skin He often times overhears adults speaking about being afraid even to touch his skin Although I know what it feels to be different I do not know truly how it feels to be different because of my skin colour But good fiction can help us to empathise and realise a closer understanding and this is what Chevalier achieved here This book reaffirms my belief that we don t listen enough to children Children see the world with a clarity that adults often forget they also once enjoyed Children have not yet been hardened and beaten into believing this or that and are therefore freer and open minded They see people not for the colour of their skin but for how that person respects them I think the greatest tragedy in life is an adult forgetting what it was like to be a child I would recommend this book It s a perfect example of how powerful literature can be because it transports you to a place you ve already been yet still teaches you something entirely new

New Boy AUTHOR Tracy Chevalier characters é 108 From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring comes the fifth installment in the Hogarth Shakespeare series a modern retelling of Othello set in a suburban schoolyardArriving at his fifth school in as many years a diplomat's son Osei Kokote knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day so he's lucky to hit it off with. This is the modern reimagining in the Hogarth Shakespeare series of the dark psychological play Othello It is transferred to the 1970s and set amongst 6th graders and teachers in a elementary school in a suburb of Washington DC It works surprisingly well and the action takes place over the period of a day The heavy and raw emotions of an incendiary jealousy bent on destruction rage envy insecurity and resentment fits well into the school playground where the smallest of incidents gets blown up into mammoth proportions The importance attached to in crowds and popularity resonate with school kids and underline its insidious malevolence in the school milieuOsei is black a Ghanian diplomat s son and the eponymous new boy who understands the need for friends to fit in into the all white school There is blatant presence of a casual racism coming from teachers and children Rising above all that and seeking to understand is the bright pretty and popular Dee who befriends Osei along with Casper This puts the cat among the pigeons as the old social order perceives itself to be threatened personified by the manipulative and jealous Ian chief ruler of the playground using fear and bullying as his means to establish his top dog position Ian has no intention of letting things stand as they are between the star crossed lovers Unlike Othello we get glimpses of the sweet and tender relationship between Osei and Dee Ian is reduced to a vindictive petty and smaller character in the greater scheme of things than the central larger than life Iago envisioned in Othello We all know where the action is inexorably heading lending dread to the narrative for the readerThis novel speaks volumes with regards to the issue of race in contemporary politics and society Osei is the outsider whose treatment bears distinctly uncomfortable parallels with the experience of black people and migrants today The schoolyard is but a micro stage of the larger national and international stage inhabited by adults Tracy Chevalier s reworking of Othello does not by any means work perfectly Nevertheless the setting is a success the time frame perhaps less so I found this a uick absorbing compelling and entertaining read Highly recommended and a great way to get young people into Shakespeare Thanks to Random House Vintage for an ARC
