An Arab-American college student struggles to live with epilepsy in this starkly colored and deeply-cutting graphic novel. Isaac wants nothing more than to be a functional college student--but managing his epilepsy is an exhausting battle to survive. He attempts to maintain a balancing act between his seizure triggers and his day-to-day schedule, but he finds that nothing--not even his medication--seems to work. The doctors won't listen, the schoolwork keeps piling up, his family is in denial about his condition, and his social life falls apart as he feels more and more isolated by his illness. Even with an unexpected new friend by his side, so much is up against him that Isaac is starting to think his epilepsy might be unbeatable. Based on the author's own experiences as an epileptic, Mis(h)adra is a boldly visual depiction of the daily struggles of living with a misunderstood condition in today's hectic and uninformed world.… (mais)

Full review to come! ( )
  Floratina | Dec 7, 2019 |
Intense art and words collide to tell the coming-of-age story of a young man trying to handle all the typical challenges of the college years while simultaneously coming to terms with his epilepsy. Not only did I find this to be a beautifully told story, but I also found it to be educational. I'm quite ignorant about epilepsy and had ignorantly thought the seizures to be the beginning and end of the disease. I had no idea how much it affected the rest of a persons life. ( )

This was a fairly interesting glimpse into the life of a person struggling with epilepsy. Unfortunately, it made use of the same old cliched structure of a person going off their meds and snowballing toward a full-blown crisis. I read the same thing in [b:Turtles All the Way Down|35504431|Turtles All the Way Down|John Green|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1503002776s/35504431.jpg|21576687] (OCD) and [b:Calvin|23310675|Calvin|Martine Leavitt|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1421087319s/23310675.jpg|42864801] (schizophrenia) earlier this year. Surely there must be some other way to tell these stories. ( )

A beautiful account of one person's struggle with epilepsy. If you have a chronic illness, you will identify with the author's story and you will feel understood. If you have a family member with a chronic illness, you should read this graphic novel. Nowhere will you find an easier, more delightful way to find out what your loved one is going through.
