This is both beautifully written and beautifully illustrated, narrating the story of the author's family's time in Vietnam and flight to the US as refugees. It's also a moving exploration of the relationship between parents and children, and how we view and define each other.

5⭐ Highly recommended

😭 A poignant graphic memoir of loss and trying to find your way out to the other side, whatever that looks like. It had to cost so much emotionally to publish this story. I hope it brings a bit of healing to other grieving souls.

Book 18 1/17/20

Shame is a cruel thing. It should rest on the perpetrators... but they don‘t carry it the way the victims do.

Meh. I saw Fun Home a few years back and decided to check this out. It took me a long time to finish as you can see I started before Christmas. Her story of her relationship with her mom and her writing was interesting. All the psychoanalysis references, not so much. That just wasn‘t my thing.

KathyWheeler I loved Fun Home, but this one bored me to tears. 5d

Finished this #graphicmemoir on Hoopla this morning. Funny, insightful, and I enjoyed the background details in each of the four-panel pages. (It took me longer than 30 minutes to read but that's what I read this morning.)

I also tried #Bookly for a second, but it didn't give me a square infographic and multiple users (including Pro ones) on the Play Store complained about syncing issues.

CaroPi In my case I have to go to the infographics and select the square option 2d
trueisa4letterword @CaroPi Yes, I did that but it still didn't work. Repeatedly. 2d
CaroPi ☹️ try to contact their costumer support. They were quite good with me. 2d

Came home from work to #bookmail so got to enjoy the last few minutes of a gorgeous day. Winter weather expected this weekend, but we haven‘t had much so that‘s okay.

Also thinking of this one for my #Booked2020 #liveandlearn prompt. Since I don‘t usually read graphic novels & this is a unique subject, I think it fits!

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟5 🌟
OMG! I now know why everyone was talking about this book and it was up on so many “best of” lists. It deserves to be there.

Check out the long review on GR and LT because I think in time it will become as important a work as Maus, or Persepolis. It‘s a view into the mind of someone living in a time where many are blind to the actions of our government.
