Cartoonist Sarah Glidden accompanies her two friends--reporters and founders of a journalism non-profit--as they research potential stories on the effects of the Iraq War on the Middle East and, specifically, the war's refugees. Joining the trio is a childhood friend and former Marine whose past service in Iraq adds an unexpected and sometimes unwelcome viewpoint, both to the people they come across and perhaps even themselves. As the crew works their way through Turkey, Iraq, and Syria, Glidden observes the reporters as they ask civilians, refugees, and officials, "Who are you?" Everyone has a story to tell: the Iranian blogger, the United Nations refugee administrator, a taxi driver, the Iraqi refugee deported from the US, the Iraqis seeking refuge in Syria, and even the American Marine.

A fascinating look into the authors trip to the middle east, tagging along with some of her journalist friends to get an inside look into what they do, how they do it, and why they find it so important.

Illustrations are good, but the story is a little boring.

Meeting people and hearing their stories is my favorite thing about travel. Thanks to Sarah Glidden's book, I met several people from Turkey, Iraq, and Syria from the comfort of my home. The quiet beauty of the watercolor art only added to the richness of the experience.
