How To Understand Israel In 60 Days Or Less by Sarah Glidden

A very interesting and dynamically illustrated book, and well worth the read.

The book is already ending up on quite a few lists of best graphic novels for teens from this year. Check out interviews with the author at Comic Book Resources and Time magazine.
