    Summary: 
    Some walked across deserts and mountains to get here. Others flew in on planes. One arrived after escaping in a suitcase. And some won't say how they got here. These are "the new kids": new to America and all the routines and rituals of an American high school, from lonely first days to prom. They attend International High School at Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, which is like most high schools in some way--its halls are filled with students gossiping, joking, flirting, and pushing the limits of the school's dress code--but all of the students are recent immigrants learning English. Together, they come from more than forty-five countries and speak more than twenty-eight languages. The New Kids chronicles a year in the life of a group of these teenage newcomers.
