4 Down, 48 To Go "Jobnik!" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

When I started Jobnik!: An American Girl's Adventures in the Israeli Army, I found the first several pages a bit slow. The autobiographical story of Miriam Libicki's enlistment in the Israeli Army builds interest, though, as she entwines her youthful passions (and often bad romantic decisions) with the political and armed conflicts in the area. By the end of the book, I found myself totally wrapped up in Libicki's world.

Autobiographical and non-fiction comics are by far my favorites, and this book is a shining example of the genre. I am already looking forward to more books by Miriam Libicki.
