"'Piece by Piece: The Story of Nisrin's Hijab, ' by Priya Huq, is a triumph, a beautifully layered graphic novel about a girl recovering from a hate crime in 2002, and the trauma of a generation before, when her mother's family fled the 1971 genocide in Bangladesh... Huq creates a powerful visual language through color and scale."-- "The New York Times"
