Sneakers Are Illegal!Childhood in Iran is difficult for Marji. The country undergoes several upheavals of religion, government, schooling, jailings, bombings and ideas. Through it all is the story of a little girl trying to grow up free in a repressive atmosphere and a country that is never quite certain of its ground. This is a fine graphic novel that shows in sometimes horrifying detail what life is like for another culture. A potent and well-written memoir.
