"As a child in Izmir, Turkey in the 1980 and 90s, Ozge Samanci watched as her country struggled between its traditional religious heritage and the new secular westernized world of brand-name products and television stars. In Ozge's own family, she struggled to figure out the place where she belonged, too. Her older sister was a perfect student, and her dad hoped Ozge would study hard, go to good schools, and become an engineer to find stability in their country's uncertain economic climate. But Ozge was a dreamer and wanted adventure. Could she be a scuba diver like Jacques Costeau? Or should she become a world-famous actress? This touching memoir shows how Ozge dared to overcome both her family and her country's expectations to find happiness by being an artist"--… (mere)

I particularly loved her reactions as a little girl and the use of mixed media. The whole message of finding yourself is pretty fantastic...to know that it's OK to not know exactly what you want to do. I would have appreciated it when I was a teen. ( )

I read this book in one sitting--I could NOT put it down. Samanci captures the voice of herself throughout all of her ages, starting as a young child and moving into adulthood grappling with fantasies of acceptance, allegiance to her nation, duty to her family, and the persistent dream of being an artist. Her use of unusual materials to create the collages of each page is to be heralded, including bread! ( )

In her autobiographical graphic novel, Özge Samancı describes her youth in Turkey, and the conflict between doing what your parents think is best for your future and what your own heart desires. I suspect we are of a similar age, and so it was fascinating to see the ways in which her childhood in the 1980s and 1990s was both similar to and different from mine. I loved learning more about the Turkish culture and some key history of the country -- Ataturk was quite the dynamo in terms of revolutionizing Turkish society, and a blue-eyed blond to boot (who knew?). It seemed to end abruptly, leaving me yearning to learn how she did finally achieve success in her chosen field (but perhaps she's saving that tale for part II?). The sad thing about graphic novels is that they are simply over too soon, and it's a challenge to savor the experience. Highly recommended, especially in conjunction with Persepolis. ( )

I do enjoy graphic novels that are biographies and how they capture and highlight key moments of the authors' lives. Ozge describes her youth in Turkey as political upheavals impact the family's fortunes. She deals with the stress of doing well in school, pleasing her parents, and finding her true path as a young adult. Teen readers will identify with Ozge's struggle to find herself. ( )

Touching, unexpectedly so. Initially thought it was derivative of Persepolis until realizing that it was doing its own marvelous thing. ( )
