Author: Marjane Satrapi
Blurb: “A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran, Persepolis provides a unique glimpse into a nearly unknown and unreachable way of life.” (Time)
Review: “We tried having the freshmen at our school read this book over the summer, thinking that they might have less resistance to a graphic novel than an onslaught of straight text. We forgot, of course, that they are freshmen and will resist all attempts to read/learn over the summer regardless.”
