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.

This is the story of how two sisters learned to get along with one another. I'm sure the truth isn't quite as tidy a...
Sisters is a graphic memoir, and I really liked it. Perhaps I’m also the oldest child of three (two girls and a boy in that order), and that so much of the sisterly dynamic seemed familiar to me, but I found myself totally engaged in the story Telgemeier told. I also loved the flashbacks to earlier ...
**A e-copy of this book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**Sisters was a really awesome graphic novel. It reminded me of how my sister and I can be. This was a realistic graphic novel for me. Something I could relate to being that I'm the oldest of 4. I loved the interactio...
