From Marjane Satrapi comes the sequel to Persepolis, which, in my opinion, is better than the first. This graphic memoir is about the author’s adolescence. She spends some time in Austria and she is exploring new things like interesting haircuts, drugs and sex for the first time. She goes back to Iran after having experienced life as a “Westerner” and has to deal with life back home. This book is very entertaining and educational as well.
This graphic memoir was gripping from start to finish. Told in first person through the eyes of a child, Satrapi explained what it was like to grow up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. This book is great for those who want a quick read, however, it’s packed with history and real emotion.
This creepy novel follows a girl named Coraline, not Caroline, as she finds a secret door in the home to which her family has just moved. She meets her “other mother” and has to fend for herself until she tries to make her way back to her real parents.
