The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui
A deeply personal and beautifully illustrated (reminiscent of Hergé’s Tintin series and Raina Telgemeier’s books for tweens) memoir. It traces the journey of the author’s family to the United States, opening up with the birth of her son in New York and going back to Vietnam to trace the beginnings of her family. From the misery of the war in her homeland to the trauma of navigating life in a foreign country and with a mix of comedy and tragedy, the familial bond shines through in The Best We Could Do.
