not my white saviorNot My White Savior: A Memoir in Poems by Julayne Lee (Rare Bird Books, March 13)

Holy cats, I cried so much reading this book. When Lee was a baby, she was adopted from South Korea and brought to Minnesota by a white Christian family. This is her beautiful, angry memoir about her loss of identity and the damage caused by being raised in an strict environment where she was repeatedly told how lucky she was, not to mention all the ignorant remarks people made to her about her heritage, her looks, and her homeland. This is a powerful book.

herding catsHerding Cats: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen (Andrew McMeel Publishing, March 27)

I have never related so hard to a comic before and I continue to be delighted and charmed by Sarah’s Scribbles. This is Andersen’s third collection, filled with both comics from her website and new comics, plus a bit of great advice at the end of this one. Love, love, love her.

And this is funny.

Oh, that Sarah MacLean, she’s always scheming.
