Sisters
by Raina Telgemeier

Back Cover Description:
Three weeks. Two sisters.
One car. A True Story
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 enters the picture, and later, when something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

My Thoughts:
Sisters is the second graphic novel in Ms. Telgemeier's Smile series. The author uses a true story from her own childhood to reveal just how complex life with a sister (and a snake!) can truly be. The colorful comic illustrations make this book the perfect read for a reluctant reader, a comic book lover, or anyone who just loves to laugh. If you've ever been on a family road trip that went bad (like I have) you'll definitely relate to this hilarious story.
