it was amazing

Wow! This was my very first graphic novel...er, what do you call them when they are nonfiction? Graphic memoir? Illustrated nonfiction? Memoir in storyboard form? Anyway, I was absolutely blown away (and that is soooo not meant to be a pun)!! Despite the horrific subject matter and often graphic (again, no pun intended) violence depicted, it was engaging, endearing, and surprisingly relatable (considering I'm a spoiled brat from the U.S. and not involved in anything remotely resembling a revolution). Honestly, the story is so poignant it hurts!!! Read it immediately!
