Jarret Krosoczka has written numerous picture books as well as graphic novels for young readers, including the popular Lunch Lady series. His graphic memoir is for young adults, Hey Kiddo: How I Lost My Mother, Found My Father and Dealt with Family Addiction. Written in the voice of his 17-year-old self, it's about being raised by his loving, gruff grandparents - because his mother was a heroin addict and his father wasn't around. The book was named a finalist for a National Book Award.
