A really lovely tale of two siblings whose fractious relationship is tested when they are forced to spend time together on a road trip from New York to Florida, and become involved in saving a sick turtle. There’s a lot going on in this graphic novel from Saadia Faruqi and Shazleen Khan, from the siblings tumultuous history and their differing obsessions - one with nature and the other with space, each represented by fun fact boxes inserted into the narrative - to the discrimination they face as Pakistani Americans. Faruqi, a novelist, adapts seamlessly to comics storytelling, aided in no small part by Khan, whose use of colour is masterful throughout, signifying shifts in tone and narrative.
