There's a good story in here somewhere, but I had trouble finding it. The narration is scattershot, jumbled, and preachy. There is both too much text for a graphic novel and not enough text to provide context or explanation for everything Medina tries to squeeze into one short book. There are much better options out there covering these same topics and themes. Those complaints aside, there still is a good story mixed into these pages. Raw and powerful and painful. One that needs to be told. One that needs to be read.
