About book: Alissa Torres is pregnant and newly married when her husband died in the September 11th terrorist attacks. While this book deals a lot with her grief and sense of loss of not only her new husband but also at the fact that she is a single mother with a child who will now never know his father it is mostly a frustrating story of bureaucracy. About how much of a pain it is to get the money that she's promised, about how many times she has to repeat her story, and about how some things are badly worded or impossible to obtain.It really is more frustrating than tragic, not that it isn't sad and not that you don't feel for her and everyone else. If there is one constant in this world, though, it is probably bureaucracy. This is my second graphic novel. I thought the illustrations weren't as good in this one and that the story itself was a little confusing at times (as far as layout, chronology). Tells the story of the author who's husband was killed on Sep. 11th when she was 7 1/2 months pregnant. Heartbreaking and real, I appreciated her trying to use a unique platform for telling her story but it didn't really work for me. 2 1/2 stars.

Great graphics- sad story. Don't read on public transport.
