This graphic memoir is gorgeous. I love Thi Bui’s art style, and her storytelling skills are astounding. I would read another book from her for sure. The Best We Could Do shares Thi Bui’s emotions becoming a parent and a re-examination of her parents relationships to her and her siblings and their parents before them.
I tend to enjoy multigenerational stories, particularly when they have a heavy focus on relationships and character development. This book encompasses both of those elements. Thi Bui shares her families expatriatism from Vietnam in the 1970s, and the ways in which that journey struggled and succeeded, and what that means for her life and her developing family.
I would highly recommend giving this graphic memoir a chance.
