Gr 7 Up—When Chuna's mother moved them from South Korea to the American South, the teen's life became a
seemingly hopeless struggle to regain her footing. An enduring love of art led the newly named Robin to social
lifelines, confidence, and a maturing appreciation of the highs and lows of American and Korean culture. An intimate,
contemplative take on forging identity.

Ooof this poor gal and her mom have been through it all. Almost American Girl is about South Korean teen who gets blindsided by her single mother with a move to the US. I've worked with a few kids who recently immigrated and were struggling to fit in when they barely spoke the language, it's so rough especially when they're older!!

I’m struck by how often comics are central to various graphic novel memoirs. Like, comics are the thing that drive these folks and that keep them going.

I love Robin Ha's other work, so I was very excited for Almost American Girl. This isn't a standout memoir on a technical level, just competent, but it's a fascinating story and I learned a lot about the immigrant experience, stuff I hadn't considered or understood. Especially the end, where Robin finally gets to return to Korea as a visitor and starts to understand how much she and the horizons of her life have changed.

I really appreciated getting a deeper looking into the experience of Ha; her struggles in adapting to her new home, sadness over losing what was familiar, and her focus on the particular hardships Korean women have had to deal with were especially eye-opening. This memoir made me feel a whole lotta emotions, and I'd love to read more of Ha's work.
