This book is about the author, Raina, and her sister Amara. As a little girl Raina always wanted a sister. But now she doesn't because Amara and her bicker A LOT. Amara is a good artist and Raina likes to listen to music. Their mom Denise and their dad have another kid named Will. When Will gets a little older they go on a trip except the dad. Raina doesn't want to sit in the passenger seat (shotgun) because of the incident. I'll leave that up for you to find out. Heh. so she sits in the back with her sister behind her. The problem is Raina and Amara never share with each other. They have to stay in a cabin when it starts raining. Then they go see their cousins and meet their dad there. After they left Raina (or Will) said " mom how come dad didn't come with us?" and her mom hesitates and says that she and Raina's dad thought that they should be apart for a while. They get stuck in the middle of nowhere, and a guy sees them and tries to help. The mom and Will get in the man's car and drive off. Leaving Raina and Amara in the van. During the time their mom and Will were gone, they were bored and finally something interesting happened. Raina had saw the incident on the ground and screamed.
Amara put the incident in a paper bag and Raina was relieved. They suddenly became nice to each other and Amara handed her the batteries she needed and I think Raina handed Amara the colored pencils. Finally their mom came back and then Raina and Amara jumped out of the car and hugged their mom. Their mom said sorry and Raina said "I call shotgun!" their mom was surprised and Amara said she had caught the incident. So then they got in the car Amara in the back, Will in the middle and Raina in the shotgun seat. Raina listened to her music , but, she stopped to smile at her sister. Her sister looked down and blushed and they were a happy family. Im pretty sure they went home. and in the back of the book there are some pictures of Amara, Raina, and Will. It was a good book.
