Praise

“A delightful account capturing the highs and lows of shifting family dynamics . . . Malaka’s tenderness for her family and Egypt are heartwarming and genuine.”—Diana Abouali, Director, Arab American National Museum
 
“This is the book that’s been missing from my bookshelf. Gharib’s writing and illustrations made me laugh and cry and transported me back to some of the best days of my life in Egypt. This unforgettable graphic memoir is written from the heart.”—Aya Khalil, author of The Arabic Quilt

“Intimate and wide-open, It Won’t Always Be Like This is a coming-of-age comic imbued with the wisdom of a mature and powerful mind. Gharib is the real deal.”—Kristen Radtke, author of Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness

“Malaka Gharib recounts her teenage memories with an open heart and an eye for detail. It Won’t Always Be Like This is her best work yet. I wish everyone could write (and draw) about their lives with this much honesty, specificity, and warmth.”—Adrian Tomine, author of The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist
