's family is faced with a difficult decision about kidney transplantation Their friendship is put to the test when these medical crises reveal stark differences in their perspectivesuntil revolutionary unrest in Egypt changes their lives fore. Lissa is a fascinating combination of academic research presented through a narrative graphic novel It s an intriguing way of trying to make scholarly work accessible though I think this particular book failed a bit both as a good reflection of the academic research but also as a compelling narrative Though the creators were obviously trying to avoid putting out a 1000 page book there needed to be a bit depth to make either aspect of the comic memorable However admirable efforts and still a good read
