it was amazing

Told with humor and a blunt honesty I love, Mira Jacob’s graphic memoir is really a memoir in two parts: Part one is Mira growing up in New Mexico in the 80’s and 90’s, wrestling with her own questions and experiences regarding race, sexuality, and love. Part two focuses on our country in its current political climate as her son begins to question everything from Michael Jackson’s changing skin color to why Trump would be angry at him for being brown.

Very serious topics, but everything Mira Jacob put down was easily accessible and 100% understandable - funny but with a deeper emotional content.

It breaks my heart that families like Mira’s have to deal with these fears and questions. Memoirs and stories like these need to be widely shared so more people, especially Americans, can see the emotions and perspectives of the people directly influenced by Trump’s bigotry and ignorance.
