Messy Roots: A Graphic Memoir of a Wuhanese American by Laura Gao

This graphic memoir gets to the heart of Gao’s experience immigrating from China to Texas at the age of 4. Following her to modern day, with the impactful backdrop of being Wuhanese during our current pandemic, Gao shares her experiences and struggles with identity, racism, sinophobia, friendship, family, and the concept of home—all the things that make us human. This is one of my favorite graphic novels! —MJ

Squire by Nadia Shammas & Sara Alfageeh

Aiza dreams of a better life, but as one of the Ornu people, she’s not even allowed citizenship. However, if she can make it through squire training, she will be granted full rights. Failure means being sent to the front lines and almost certain death, but the stakes are actually much higher than she knows. Both comic book veterans, the author and artist have created something truly breathtaking in both style and storytelling. —Ivy
