Sisters by Raina Telgemeier

Raina Telgemeier has a new book out! Raina Telgemeier has a new book out!

Sisters is a companion book to Smile, but you don’t need to have read Smile to enjoy Sisters. (But really, you should Smile, too, because it is also great.) This story chronicles a road trip that Raina’s family takes from San Francisco to Colorado. Raina and her sister Amara have never been simpatico, but being trapped in the car together taxes their already strained relationship. Can two sisters who have nothing in common ever get along?

This book is very insightful about family dynamics and realistically portrays a family weathering different kinds of hardships. It’s also very funny and you’ll probably want to read it all in one sitting. Get yourself to library catalog to place your hold now!
