I'm currently reading Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi. I never really read comic books growing up, so this is my first real experience with the format. So far, I'm intrigued by the story and it's interesting to have pictures to enhance a rather harrowing story. The pictures also nicely compliment the author's voice, since the memoir is told from the point of view of a child. I'll give my final review once I've finished the book.
Welcome! I'm an avid fan of Young Adult literature, though I'm not exactly a young adult any longer. As a high school English teacher, I'm always looking for new titles, so please - share with me the books you love!
