Baddawi by Leila Abdelrazaq is a graphic novel about the author's father's childhood in Lebanon as a refugee from Palestine. It's rendered in black and white in a style similar to Marjane Satrapi's.
The book is short, only 125 pages, and can easily be read over the course of a single sitting. I happened to read it while having lunch.
The book is both devastating and hopeful. It's about trying to be a child and trying to grow up when every day the rules change and the environment becomes more dangerous and more uncertain.
