Jarrett Krosoczka uses graphic novel ‘Hey, Kiddo’ to tell family story of addiction


He was in preschool when he realized something wasn’t quite right. While drawing a picture of his family, now best-selling author Jarrett Krosoczka paused to look around at his classmates’ drawings, none of which included grandparents. But Krosoczka’s grandparents were his de facto parents because his mom was a heroin addict, in and out of rehab, and his dad was a total mystery.

After writing a plethora of children’s and young adult books, including the popular Star Wars: Jedi Academy series, and meeting lots of kids impacted by addiction, Krosoczka knew he had another story left to tell: his own.
