Lucy Knisley: French Milk

Just finished reading this terrific graphic journal, which I read based solely on the cover. Lucy and her mother spend six weeks in a funky Paris apartment for Lucy's 22nd birthday, where Lucy goes through a post-art-school crisis, and recovers with a good helping of her mother's love and vast quantities of French milk. Like the cover, the book combines photographs and comics, sometimes on facing pages, so we're seeing "reality" and its cartoon version right next to it.
