Recommended by Amber Cortes

In her debut graphic-novel memoir, Thi Bui, on the verge of first-time parenthood, traces her feelings of both fear and love back to her family, who were refugees after the Vietnam War and came to the United States in a boat. Bui's light pink and blue hues of watercolor splashed over her illustrations give a sensitive touch to the memories and emotional worlds that she and her family inhabit. Like in Persepolis, you'll learn about how the trauma of war, political instability, and sudden migrations can tear a family apart, through the lens of her parents, whose captivating life stories make it impossible to put the book down.
