Little Fish: A Memoir from a Different Kind of Year by Ramsey Beyer is a hybrid memoir, zine, and graphic novel format account of her first year at art school in Baltimore. Originally from Paw Paw, Michigan, Ramsey felt like a little fish in a big sea.

Ramsey Beyer's memoir reminds me of two of my other favorite graphic novel format memoirs: Doodlebug by Karen Romano Young and Smile by Raina Tegemeier.

The memoir covers all the bases of the big move to college: the excitement mixed with apprehension moving into a dorm (one very similar to what I stayed in during my first year), and to those roommates and first friends. For anyone who has made a huge move in life or is contemplating one, I recommend this book with enthusiasm.

Five stars
