Award-winning children’s book illustrator David Small (Imogene’s Antlers, So You Want to Be President?) recounts his nightmarish childhood in this amazing and disturbing memoir, which takes the form of a graphic novel. The text and illustrations are spare, but so evocative. You will be inspired by Small’s escape from his repressive and angry household, as well as by his growth into a successful and talented adult. This book is not for the faint of heart, but is most definitely a rewarding read.
