Everything Is Beautiful Unreal!!! The artwork is often gorgeous and is in full color. It's a pretty sad book, though, and often like reading through a really artistic person's diary and doodles while they're going through an existential crisis. This is not a happy book but it is one that many young people will probably relate to.
I know my oldest 21 would probably really enjoy it. I would preview it before purchasing, as it really does seem to have a niche audience. For those who relate though, or who want to understand the complex struggles of folks in Xiao's communities, it is an honest and heartfelt read with some nice art.
I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for the purpose of review. Jan 09, Amit Verma rated it liked it. It is about sadness enveloping someone who is alien to everything surrounding.
To his own blood as well as to foreign land. It is about misfit who cannot escape traditional restraints and also cannot survive in the cage. So he is caught between two worlds, both of which are out of his control. It depicts Everything Is Beautiful extreme sadness how everything falls apart for main character.

It felt messy for lack of a better word? Queer, Chinese immigrant woman sorting out life and its ups and downs. Graphic novels are especially personal, I think, and like I said there were a couple pages Lovely concepts and there were a few pages that were spot on for me Everything Is Beautiful be useful for teaching tools, too. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Jul 23, Rod Brown rated it it was ok. There is interesting subject matter as the author's surrogate, Baopu, deals with rejection by her mother when she comes out as bisexual. She also has to handle the stress of being Everything Is Beautiful Chinese resident alien in New York City. Unfortunately, the presentation is basically graphic poetry, and I just could not engage with that. Not my thing. Aug 10, Elizabeth A rated it it was ok Shelves:non-fictionmemoirgraphix.
I expected to really like this one. A young, queer, Chinese immigrant seeks a place to belong. When you don't fit in with your family of origin, or even the country you were born, where do you call home?
This graphic memoir didn't work for me on any level. I didn't like the illustration style, and while I appreciated what the author was attempting here, this just wasn't for me.

I like the descriptions and illustrations depicting the narrator's immigrant, queer status, and finding her identity.

I'm not sure how to describe this. It feels like an illustrated poetic memoir. It is jumbled and messy and complex and just beautiful. It doesn't always make sense. It is so movingly written, though, and the color palette is perfection.
It feels like the search for belonging that it is. Nov 10, Vanessa rated it really liked it Shelves:graphic-novels-comicsfirst-reads. This book isn't for everyone and I think that's why there are a lot of differing reviews. I really enjoyed it and I'll try to explain why. The art style isn't exactly consistent I feel like that's on purpose and it's a little on the cartoon-y side but I actually really like it. There isn't a set formula like a four panel comic in this book, all the panels change from page to page making it feel more active and dynamic.
The simplistic style also lends itself to focus less on the pictures and mor This book isn't for everyone and I think that's why there are a lot of differing reviews. The simplistic style also lends itself to focus less on the pictures and more on what is said and going on. That said, here are some truly lovely panels and full page spreads also included in here. Also there is more to art than making it conventionally attractive, it can be said that true art is a conveyance of feelings but art in itself is subjective.
This book does read more like confiding in your diary type of book, but it is definitely an art piece itself. Yao Xiao is telling a story that doesn't spell it out for the reader, in a traditional sense, and you're meant to read between the lines to fill in more of the story.
There is a fair amount of referencing to being queer and an immigrant-which if you aren't those things you can't relate to but you can learn from. There is also other things that could be relatable, such as searching for your place in the world, accepting yourself, learning to speak positively, self-care, and just a ton of other things this book touches on.
Yao Xiao takes you on a journey to learn about her but also to learn about herself. She traverses many seemingly insignificant memories that obviously left a lasting impression on her, learning to accept herself-even if others won't, and learning that it doesn't make her any less if people don't accept her.
This is such a lovely and open book that it almost feels like being confided in by a close friend. Feb 21, Silvia rated it really liked it Shelves: arcedelweissmarchrep-bi. I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via Edelweiss for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.
I enjoyed this autobiographic comic by a bisexual Chinese artist living in the United States. I obviously can't judge the content since it's her own experience, and there were a lot of experiences that I as a white woman I probably can't even begin to fully comprehend.

I did however relate a lot to the feeling of being an immigrant and kind of forever losing your sense of what is "home", about your life abroad feeling like fiction and the sense of "giving in" when you accept to start making friends in the new place.
There was a variety of real life experiences told in a more classical comic style and more introspective pages and I thought the art reflected both really well. It's kind of a simple art style but it worked perfectly for the type of book this is. TWs : racism, biphobia, homophobia, sexism Nov 05, Annemieke De rated it really liked it. I received an Arc from NetGalley to write an honest review, Everything Is Beautiful.
Yao Xiao made this graphic novel that tells the story of an Asian girl living in New York. Although that may not be an experience that fits in with the live story of every boy or girl, this graphic novel will appeal to many young people. It's a story about being bisexual, about being different, about coping with expectations others can have and you can have about yourself.
