    "I had read Fun Home by Bechdel and was very interested in finishing her autobiography. I decided to check out Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama. I was a little disappointed. It didn't answer the questions I had left over after the first book."

    "This is written for a specific audience which are lesbians but i dont want to put it that way. I think its more like for women who are interested in women to put it in a nice way. It is very erotic so i would highly suggest you give it a good read when you are in the mood for such things. It's a great book to read at night before you doze off to sleep. "

    "The illustration alone made this worth the purchase. That said, the narratives are also compelling and unique. One of the few comics I've ever read that captures that latin@ feel, but it doesn't feel forced or specifically aimed at one community. I'll end up owing the whole catalogue I'm pretty sure, and I advise you do the same."

    "This does not seem like a good solution. Based on all the information given nothing about it seems like it is a graphic novel or like it is geared towards LGBT. Also being only 27 pages I do not believe this classifies as a novel as well. "
