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

A very interesting and dynamically illustrated book, and well worth the read. Part memoir, and travelogue, the author took a “Birthright Israel” tour, thinking she knew what she was getting herself in for, eventually discovered that like a lot of us, she didn’t know a lot about Israel at all. 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.
