I can't really explain why I liked this book so much, so I'll just mention some things I liked in particular. I like how Georges distinguishes between her childhood and adulthood with more cartoon-y drawings for the former and more realistic ones for the latter. I liked the author's kind of non-judgmental openness and how good-natured her voice is while telling this pretty painful story. I liked HER. I cried like a baby at the end and ended up feeling really grateful that Georges shared her story with us even though it doesn't have the resolve I have come to expect from memoirs.
