Vietnamerica (#24) by G.B. Tran and Bossypants by Tina Fey (#23)
Humorous accounting of Tina Fey's life.
This graphic novel is the story of a Vietnamese family, their life in Vietnam and their flight to America in 1975. The author is the youngest son, born in America, learning his family's history during a visit to the homeland. Time shifts back and forth between the present and 1975 so it was not always easy to keep track of the characters. This is a big and richly illustrated book; the author is a gifted artist.
