A Banksy-style protest against cameras in classrooms brings a group of middle-grade students together. For fans of Rebecca Stead, Susin Nielsen and Gordon Korman. Dominica's private school is covered in cameras, and someone is hacking into them and posting embarrassing moments for the whole school to see. Like Ana picking her nose. When Dominica quickly changes her shirt from inside out in what she thinks is the privacy of a quiet corner in the library, she's shocked -- and embarrassed -- to discover a video has captured this and is currently circulating amongst her schoolmates. So mortifying, especially since over the past three years, they've had a half-dozen school talks about social media safety. Who has access to the school security cameras and why are they doing this? Dominica and her best friends, Holden and Saanvi, are determined to find out, and in the process start an art-based student campaign against cameras in the classroom.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Me and Banksy may be preoccupied with the day's technological toys, but it puts in the foreground a timeless concern: teen angst. Shelf Awareness
Kyi tackles the use of cameras and social media bullying in high schools, showing how friendship, art and self-empowerment save the day. BC Bookworld Magazine
Me and Banksy is engaging, well-plotted, and ultimately thought-provoking novel. -CM Reviews
As incisive as it is funny, Me and Banksy offers strongly drawn characters and sharp insights about protest, victimization, and the precarious nature of surveillance. STARRED REVIEW, Quill & Quire
Kyi . . . examines the large and small impacts of living in a surveillance society, but her faith in youth and art makes this story anything but dystopian. Publishers Weekly
A Canadian Children's Book Centre Reading List Pick, May 2020
