The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi Graphic Novel
This is the story/memoir of a young Iranian girl growing up through the revolution. I really fell in love with Marjane's strength, independence, free-spirit, and plain old chutzpah. The details about the revolution and what the Iranian people went through was heart wrenching and I feel like I gained a whole new perspective of Iran's history and the Iranian people. I loved this book.
