How much do outsiders know about the country of Turkey Here, a professor from Northwestern University tells what it was like to grow up in Turkey She follows her early life, starting in 1981 before she started school , and ends during college as she looks toward a professional path Graphic novels are an evocative medium for memoir, and Samanci uses the strengths of visual storytelling to great effect Her thesis was on using comics in the digital context, and this is clearly a thoughtful work Her own drawings are cartoonish in a slightly silly way, at first, and she integrates those drawings with elements of collage There are no panel borders instead, the images float on white pages She uses color sparingly for instance, to make her blonde head s Here is the thing Masterly drawn, and beautifully written, the book leaves you with a sense of incompleteness and a delusion that it should have been longer, braver and fuller, a much intended delusion aimed at and kept as a secret from you throughout the book victoriously by the writer and you are hanging in time and space aching to find closure, only to realize it s the only thing the book hasn t offered you Just like this country, Turkey itself And you think, just for a second that this was an error, a defect, a misjudge the writer had come to in her writing process, and that second ends with a painful smile on your face only to show you that this has been the idea all along I am incomplete, I ve always felt incomplete, and this feeling I ve been left with when the book ended, this was just the thin This graphic novel is well done, but I ll have to send it up to the middle school library as it is too young adult for elementary students Ozge Samanci s minimalist illustrations and dry sense of humor make this an excellent look into what it was like growing up in Turkey The heart of the story is about Ozge trying to figure out what she wants to do in life and the difficulty of trying to live up to her father s expectations and imitate her brilliant older sister She recounts the political and cultural upheavals growing up and the dangerous culture she lived in A near rape, prejudice from extreme ideologies at school, and fierce competition of trying to make it into prestigious schools make this a page turner Ozge never takes herself too seriously though an
