I'm a sucker for the autobiomemoirgns. This is a highly personal gn by C. Tyler about her experiences getting to know her father's history in World War II as a soldier. As such, it's a fun compare/contrast with Maus or The Imposter's Daughter. Especially because the visual style is very different from either of those offerings. The main drawback here is that it ends before the story really resolves. Publish the next Book, Tyler! Both of my parents read this and we're all eagerly awaiting the sequel. A really nice demo of the practicality of integrating images into text, but very approachable text-heavy format. Very readable and fascinating. I don't even really esthetically enjoy Tyler's illustration style, but I was sucked in by the story.
