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.

3.75/5 stars It would've been a full 4 stars (for me) if it wasn't so short. I wanted more of the story! I mean, I wouldn't say the ending was abrupt, but still... *sighs* Nevertheless, I really enjoyed "Sisters." it was nice to read more about Raina and her relationship with her sister. However, I have to say, I feel like it could've been more developed. It wasn't until about the end they were getting along better. I guess I just wished there were more moments they bonded. Also, the artwork--it's neat and on point, which is what I like about her style. (Like on page 7--when she had her hands together: she was so cute there! ^.^ Page 28: just fantastic. xDshow more

I don't have a lot to say about this. It's for a younger audience than Telgemeier's previous two books and not anywhere near as good. An enjoyable but mediocre story of the dynamics between typical sisters. This is again biographical like the author's first book, Smile, and takes place concurrent with it as well. The girls learn a few things about their family and themselves but the only real plot of mention is that of a pet snake that escapes. Not bad, but only fair to middling compared to the author's previous more
