Rutu Modan's graphic novel The Property follows Regina Segal and her granddaughter Mica as they travel to Warsaw, Poland to claim a property that their family owned before World War II. Yet all is not what it seems — Regina's past contains deep secrets, and Mica is dismayed to find that she is being followed.
The Property succeeds with a well-plotted story; compelling characters; and straightforward, lovely illustrations.
