    1. I liked it. It takes Joy Kogawa's poem "What do I Remember of the Evacuation" and matches it up with a graphic novel/comic format, illustrating the poem. It also has a section of photos (as well as some throughout the main text IIRC) and additional historical info about the Japanese-Canadian evacuations and internment camps.
