This book opened my eyes to something I knew nothing about and it was so well written - the graphic novel format made it really accessible. Highly highly recommended.
I also LOVE the idea of doing a comic strip design as it is easier to read and brings the emotion to real life, it also shows that this book is unique as not many books use this design.
What else could be better this story is a great book and it is based on a true story so so amazing. All i have to say is what an amazing book this book is!
