A Girl Named Zippy

 I absolutely adore this book.

It’s a memoir of the author’s happy childhood in a small town and it had me smiling with every page. Although Haven Kimmel’s stories are simple, her characters are palpable and her descriptions through the eyes of a child are ingenious. I will definitely be giving it another go in a year or so..I have to if I want to learn how to write with as much flare as she does.

Midweek Read

The Complete Persepolis is a graphic novel, meaning it is formatted like a comic book. I have never read anything like this before and I was a little skeptical at first, but within the first few pages I knew it was going to be well worth my time. This book is a memoir of a girl growing up in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution…it was sad, enlightening, and surprisingly powerful. I say surprisingly because I never expected to be moved by simplistic pictures with captions/word bubbles. Try it out, you won’t regret it.
