Raina Telgemeier’s #1 New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning companion to 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.

      This funny and heart felt comic tells us all about Raina's trip with her annoying little sister and brother through pictures and speech bubbles. Raina again faces the troubles of growing up, including parent arguments and sleeping without stuffed animals. I really liked this book, as sister faces sister, they learn the true meaning of siblings <3

        Raina had always wanted a sister, and, after a while she got her wish. What she didn't know is how rude that sister would be, Raina and Amara fight and fight until they move, where they will face earthquakes, and other things. Until, they are.. sisters?

            This book is great! It is about two sisters who don't go well together, even though the older sister wanted a sister when she was younger. Also, I think most sisters are like this.

              "Sisters" is another graphic novel written by Raina Telgemeier. The main character, Raina constantly begs her parents for a sister. One day, her wish was granted when her mother got pregnant with a little girl. However, having a sister was nothing like Raina expected. It seems as though her sister (Amara) didn't like her. They don't share the same interests, as well. Raina and her family go on a road trip to meet up with relatives and the two sisters argue the way there. Read the book to find out more :)

                    The book was really good especially because I have an annoying little bro and sis. So it was pretty cool that I am not the only big sis who is completely annoyed by there siblings.

                      Ever been annoyed by your siblings? If so, this book can definitely relate to you! It's a sweet story about Raina and her family going through hard times. It's filled with cute illustrations and it's inspirational. I suggest this book to 4th grade and up.
