Jarrett J. Krosoczka of Lunch Lady and other fame, takes a look at his own troubled childhood in this powerful graphic memoir. From the outset of Jarrett’s life things were not easy. His father ran away before he was even born and his mother struggled with addiction and was largely out of his life in rehab and prison. Luckily, young Jarrett had a couple of caring, but opinionated, grandparents who raised him well enough. Still, life was not normal, not the same as the other kids in school. Hey Kiddo is the story of a kid learning to understand his families difficulties and ultimately using art to transcend them.
