Sisters by Raina Telgemeier

About the Book
Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

The companion to Raina Telgemeier’s #1 New York Times bestselling 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 humour 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.

GBC Review by Hailey W. (age 11)

This book is about sisters who go on a car trip to see their cousins and it shows how sisters love each other even though they sometimes fight. I really liked it because it was very realistic. The two sisters in the book, act exactly like my sister and I. It is written in a comic format, which makes it easy to understand. I would recommend this book to 9-12 year olds and anyone who likes graphic (comic book style) novels.
