The art may remind you of Persepolis but we're in Lebanon during the Lebanese Civil War instead and the story is much more fragmented. It's a series of "I remember" or "I don't remember" statements and anecdotes about the author's life in Beirut during the time. It's a smooth story but at the same time perhaps doesn't have the sort of impact I was expecting. There are moments - like the volume of the father's music and the bullet ridden family car - but overall it feels a lot more like someone just telling you bits of a story instead of the whole thing.
A companion to Abirached's earlier "A Game for Swallows." Has a simple, hypnotic rhythm. Perhaps a good addition to middle school book clubs.
