Read a Graphic Novel about Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller

Annie Sullivan and the trials of Helen Keller by Joseph Lambert ; with an introduction by TK — If I knew nothing of either Annie Sullivan or Helen Keller, this might not have been the best first choice to find out, but the graphic format is very creative. I was especially impressed with how the illustrator alternated between Annie Sullivan (with full color and detail) and Helen Keller (beginning with more basic colors and very little detail, but as she learned more words, the pictures also became more rich). My biggest complaint is the skipping around - at times it was hard to tell where in Annie and Helen's timeline the story was taking place. There were multiple flashbacks into Annie's young life, which gave some nice insight, but created a very non-linear story.
