And bitter sweet graphic novel with great descriptive illustrations VERY nice art workWell designedThe storymemoir is dull to the extremeThe activities f and crises faced by this girl are so mundane and typical as to be soporificI can t help thinking that if this book were reflecting n a North American girl f this periodage levelfamily background instead f ne living in the Soviet Union this publisher would not ha A Year Without Mom was a nice little read The Age of Treachery on this windy cold snowy day The narrative was interesting it was told in present tense which I wasn t expecting and made it feel like it wasn t a memoir but a fictional story The cool things about memoirs is that the author looks backn their life and decide how to share their life with their readers But since this was told in present tense it have that looking back thoughtful possibly nostaglic uality that a lot f memoirs especially graphic memoirs have The writing was also incredibly simple There were a lot f caps and exclamation points and soooo s which made the narrative sound juvenile There also wasn t too much emotion behind anything I expected the story to have feeling since this young girl Dasha had to live for a year in Russia while her mother was in America but it just felt like Dasha explaining a series The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of events and her mother just happened to be absent Maybe I just unawaref the target audience here Maybe this was written as Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of a middle grade and I didn t realize that Either way I was just surprised that it felt much like a book for younger readers since I wasn t expecting that The illustrations in this graphic novel were beautiful though I love the color palette all black white and grey with accentsf red Tolstikova has a very distinct style that really fit the feel Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) of this story I did say there was a bitf a lack f emotion less than I expected but that doesn t mean this novel didn t have any feeling I spent a much longer time exploring the images in this novel than the words I will definitely flip through this again and again just for the illustrations because they really are something special I wanted to bump the start rating up just for the illustrations but the narrative style was just too different from what I was expecting This was by no means bad 3 stars means I enjoyed the novel If the target audience f this is young readers and is possible a way to get them into graphic novels When a Man Loves a Woman or memoirs then this was done very well I just don t fully know what the intentf this novel was so it s hard to say if it fulfilled that whatever it is A Year Without Mom was a very nice read though Very nice and very pretty indeed A Year Without Mom is absolute perfectionEvery word so carefully chosen is like having.
