That being said, I felt like the actual story was a bit weak and disjointed. Wasn't a waste of time, but felt like the plot could have been better execu...

    Trigger warnings for bullying, sexism and illness/hospitals. This was a sweet contemporary graphic novel about an Indian-American teen wanting to learn more about her heritage. I thought the cartoonish art style worked really well to convey the coming-of-age themes and make it appeal to both middle ...
