Sisters by Raina Telgemeier


Sisters by Raina Telgemeier

The companion to Raina Telgemeier's bestselling graphic memoir, SMILE. Raina can't wait to be a big sister, but once Amara is born she realizes things won't be quite what she had expected...or hoped. Despite Amara's cuteness, she is 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 their parents' relationship starts to struggle, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.


* A wonderfully charming tale of family and sisters that anyone can bond with. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review * Alternately poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review * Telgemeier's art complements her writing to great effect, offering a cheerful, vivid cartoon simplicity that allows readers to instantly engage even as it leaves room for deeper truths to take hold. -- Booklist, starred review * A must-have follow-up to Smile

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
