This book tells the story of Marji, a young girl growing up during the Iranian revolution.
Eventually her parents send her away to Austria for her own safety, where she struggles to find her true self.
It shows how horrifying it is living in a country that is at war. They recruit kids to be part of the war, close schools, attack woman that wear nailpolish or show a bit of hair. It's awfull! I've read 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' and 'I am Malala' so I knew how little rights woman have there, but it still shocks me..
Not only is this book a memoir, it's also teaches you important part of history in Iran.
I loved that is was written as a graphic novel, i found it a powerfull way to tell a story. The pictures were simple, in black and white, but really add to the power of this novel.
