It took me a bit longer to get into this book than it did with the first book, but soon I was sucked in, unable to put it down. Once she returns to Iran (which I hope isn't a spoiler since the subtitle is "The Story of a Return), I really started to feel for her and wanted to see how much her life was going to change again. She's caught in the middle of two cultures, and she doesn't really feel like she belongs in either one, which is something that I think a lot of us can relate to, even if we've only ever lived in one country.

And, really, that's one of the things I loved about this book. The details are specific to her life in Iran, but the emotions and the things she struggles with are things that all of us can relate to. I highly recommend this book (and the first one, if you haven't read that).

And don't let the graphic novel format stop you from picking this up - the format is easy to read, and it's the same quality literature I would expect to find in regular novel.
