This is a poignant reflection on 9/11 that imparts rich mindfulness of the vast experiences of those who witnessed the tragedy beyond one's self. It's told from a family's multiple perspectives. Drawn with bold chiaroscuro, it's a square booklet of 10 pages, 9 drawn and a page of endnotes, wholly meeting and exceeding what I expected.

I loved the zines. The comics were neat and interesting too. I enjoyed all four of them! They were fun to read.

A charming little book contrasts experiences of growing up between a mother and her daughter.
