In this poignant graphic memoir, artist Thi Bui reflects on the consequences of war and the impact of intergenerational trauma by chronicling her family’s turbulent history. Starting with the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, Bui documents the struggles they faced as immigrants adjusting to new lives in America. It’s only through experiencing her own trials as a first-time mother that she truly understands the incredible sacrifices her parents made to give their children a better life. Tackling themes of identity and family, The Best We Could Do makes a great addition to any nonfiction unit.
