The companion to Raina Telgemeier''s #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir, 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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Sisters : * “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 *  “Told in then-and-now narratives that are easily discernible in the graphic format, Telgemeier’s tale is laugh-out-loud funny (especially the story about the snake incident) and quietly serious all at once. Her rounded, buoyant art coupled with a masterful capacity for facial expressions complements the writing perfectly.” — Kirkus, starred review * “Though the artwork draws little attention to itself, Telgemeier’s visual storytelling skills are well-honed, and readers will be left wishing for more.” — Publishers Weekly , starred review * “Telgemeier has returned with a must-have follow-up to Smile (Scholastic, 2010) that is as funny as it is poignant, and utterly relatable for anyone with siblings.” — School Library Journal , starred review * Fans of Telgemeier’s graphic-novel memoir Smile will be smiling all the way through this companion book, an often bittersweet but amusingly told story about Raina’s intense and difficult relationship with her younger sister, Amara." — The Horn Book Magazine, starred review “I love [Telgemeier’s] work, not because it is exotic or unusual, but because
