review 1: An affecting novel about the Lebanese Civil War, from the point of view of two children waiting for their parents to return home during a severe bombardment. The kids are surrounded by people from their building who quietly care for them during this particularly tense episode. De...

review 1: This was my first time reading a graphic novel. Since I enjoy reading and analyzing written work more than graphic work, I feel like this book went by too fast for me. The graphics were absolutely beautiful though, and many times kinda funny too. The book is about the experiences...

review 1: This book is compared to Persepolis a lot, and the artwork is similar, as is the focus on a young narrator in a wartorn environment, but I really felt the scope of the story was too limited. A group of people huddle together one night in Beirut. We get glimpses of their past, and...

review 1: The way these memories are weaved make them all the more poignant. For as much as I thought I couldn't relate to a kid's experience of growing up in Beirut in the 80s, I learned that we both remember Flo Jo's nails and the sounds from cassette tapes. I loved that I could go onto ...
