The companion to Raina Telgemeier's #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir, Smile. Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all. Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.

A very sweet story with cute cartoon drawings (it's a graphic novel) that tell the story of two sisters' relationship and how they grow together, based on the author's real childhood. I read it in an hour and enjoyed it very much!

I like this book because it connects to real life and that the author made a book about her own life so its like biography.

Sisters takes place over the course of a family road trip from California to Colorado, revealing the complexities of close family relationships through flashbacks into the author's early childhood, which focus on Raina and her sister Amara’s tense relationship. The road trip occurs over a backdrop of their parents’ strained marriage. This book is relatable and easy to absorb, highlighting the struggles of pre-teenhood. The artwork is appealing yet unassuming. While I was able to read it entirely in a 30-minute sitting, I don’t think I would have felt compelled to pick it up again had I stopped half way through. Neither the story nor the artwork did enough to grab me. I would recommend this to children and younger teens who are hesitant to read and are looking for something short and relatable.

In this exciting, funny, and fun filled book you get to see two sisters who like every pair of sisters are arguing, yelling, and not really getting along. But also they can be nice to each other, understanding, and caring. I loved this book !
